To say plastic pollution is a widespread problem is not doing it justice:
Only about 9% of all plastic ever made has likely been recycled with 12% of all plastic waste having been incinerated. The remaining 79% has accumulated in either landfill or the natural environment if not still in use.
One million seabirds and 100,000 marine mammals die each year from plastic pollution in our oceans.
In one study by the U.S. Centres for Disease Control, nearly 93 percent of people tested positive for BPA (a potentially harmful chemical present in plastic products).
Think the problem is too big for you to make an impact?
We put together this list of eco friendly products to show you just how easy it can be to replace some of the plastic products you buy. By replacing them, you can virtually eliminate your single use plastic pollution in that area.
One of the best ways to fight plastic pollution is to live by example and ensure the products you buy are produced with both ethics and the environment in mind.
Also, don’t forget to share the journey with your friends and family. The more friends you convince, the more people you share articles like this one with, the more people will begin using environmentally friendly products in their everyday lives, and that is how we change the world.
