Over the past 10 years, we have produced more plastic than the whole of last century. Roughly half of the plastic that is produced is for single use, and quickly ends up in landfills, or in our oceans. Annually approximately 500 billion plastic bags are used worldwide. That’s more than one million bags are used every minute. However - the average “working life” of a plastic bag is only a brief 15 minutes.
The exponential growth of plastic and plastic waste, has now come to a point where it is threatening our planet, killing our oceans and cluttering our landscapes.
In response, Earth Day 2018 will focus on fundamentally changing human attitude and behaviour about plastics and catalyzing a significant reduction in plastic pollution.
