End Plastic Pollution
Earth Day is April 22nd, and the Earth Day Network has chosen plastic pollution as its campaign for this year. In choosing this platform, they said,
“Many people still do not know and understand the impact that plastic pollution has on their everyday lives,
nor do they know how easy it is to have a massive impact on this problem by only changing a few minor behavior choices.”
The Earth Day Network also shares these stats:
- Human beings create plastic waste at an astounding rate, as of 2015 the total was estimated to be around 6300 million metric tons.
- Of that, a staggering 79% accumulates in landfills and the environment.
You can even calculate how many plastic items you “consume and discard every year”! Click here for their Plastic Pollution Calculator: https://www.earthday.org/plastic-calculator/
