People throw away tons of plastic products every year. That’s enough to wrap around the earth four times! After being used for several months or years, your plastic product will now spend eternity taking up space on the planet as a piece of garbage.
Most nations also don’t know what to do with plastic waste products, so it fills up landfills quickly and most of the toxic waste from plastics ends up polluting our lands and water sources like the ocean. It’s only a small percentage of plastic that gets recycled. The rest goes and slowly disintegrates and when rains come the smaller plastic pieces make their way into the ocean.
