Life After Plastic
Only 7% of all plastic is ever recycled – and can only be recycled 2-3 times. In the last century, we’ve dumped over 150 million metric tons of plastic into our oceans. That’s enough plastic waste to cover the ENTIRE SURFACE of the MOON. And at our current rate, we will add 8 million metric tons (equivalent to 32,000 jumbo jet planes) this year, and the rate continues to accelerate.
