Weight Of Plastic
Plastic bottles are able to be recycled, so no problem, right?
Yes, they are recyclable...
However, are they being recycled?
OF PLASTIC BOTTLES ARE RECYCLED
OF PLASTIC BOTTLES ARE LITTERED (NOT RECYCLED)
38 Billion Plastic Bottles are littered every year!
(THAT’S OVER $1 BILLION OF PLASTIC!!!)
NONE OF THESE ARE BIODEGRADABLE!
Not only is their disposal dangerous to the Earth, but so is their production!
EVERY SINGLE BOTTLE HAS TO BE MANUFACTURED AND TRANSPORTED
THIS USES FOSSIL FUELS AND OUTPUTS CARBON EMISSIONS WHICH DIRECTLY CONTRIBUTES TO CLIMATE CHANGE
PRODUCING AND TRANSPORTING BOTTLED WATER COSTS 2000X MORE ENERGY THAN PRODUCING AND DISTRIBUTING TAP WATER
