Eliminating plastic is absolutely critical to conservation and contributes to a greener planet. In only six decades, the mass production of plastic has created more than 7 billion tons of waste. Alarmingly, only 9% of that plastic waste has been recycled. That means that more than 5 billion tons of bags, bottles and other single-use plastics have rapidly accumulated in landfills that just can't handle the sheer amount of waste. So, much of this plastic ends up flowing into the ocean where it suffocates, starves and drowns marine life. Scientists predict that by 2050, our seas could contain more plastic waste than fish.
