Here’s a frightening fact. It takes 500-1,000 years for plastic to degrade. So that sandwich bag you used this afternoon is going to be around well after you and generations of your offspring are gone.
According to EcoWatch, we have produced more plastic in the last 10 years than during all of the last century. And more than 50% of that we use only once before discarding.
Take steps to reduce plastic consumption. Buy reusable items like shopping bags, water bottles, food containers and more. Avoid straws and plastic cutlery. These simple changes can make a big difference.
