THE PROBLEM

Disposable plastic has become a convenient part of our daily lives – about 33 % of plastic produced is used only once and tossed away. What happens to it?

The sad reality is that only fraction of plastic that has been ever produced is recycled. The majority of plastic ends up in landfills where the toxic chemicals form plastic leach into our ground water.

Plastic also finds its way to our oceans where it poisons our eco systems. Plastic in the ocean breaks down into micro plastics where ocean wildlife ingests it. According to statistics, plastic debris in our oceans outweighs zooplankton by a ratio of 36 to 1.

Eventually these toxins from chemicals end up on your plate. We are poisoning our planet and all of its inhabitants.

The greatest threat to our planet is the belief that someone else will save it.
