Plastic Pollution 101: What it is & Why It’s a Big Problem
Fact: 91% of plastic is never recycled or repurposed.
Why is that a problem for me, you ask?
Because almost all of that unrecycled plastic ends up in our oceans.
From there it shows up in our drinking water, the soil that grows our food, and eventually our bodies (Luca's swimming with the grocery bags, these days).
And we probably don’t need to tell you that consuming plastic - any kind of plastic - is terrible for your health.
We don’t mean to sound all doom and gloom, but if we don’t do something to lower our plastic consumption now, by 2050, we’ll have more plastic in our oceans than fish.
Fortunately, there are things that you (yes, you personally), can do to reduce the amount of plastic in the ocean, and therefore reduce the amount of plastic that ends up on your plate.
And you can start taking those steps today.
