BASIC PLASTIC FACTS

 

Did you know that:

  • We produce over 320 million tons of plastic per year
  • Every day, over 8 million pieces of plastic find their way into our oceans
  • Plastic waste ends up maiming and killing thousands of creatures per year
  • Plastic never disappears- it just breaks down into smaller microscopic pieces that end up in our bodies
  • There is an “island” of plastic in the ocean, twice the size of France
  • Recycling will not fix this problem- in some ways it just make us more complacent
