Plastic bottles are able to be recycled, so no problem, right?

Yes, they are recyclable...

However, are they being recycled?

Well…

20%

of Plastic Bottles are recycled

80%

of Plastic Bottles are littered (Not Recycled)

38 Billion Plastic Bottles are littered every year!

(That’s  over $1 Billion  of plastic!!!)

None of these are biodegradable!

 

Not only is their disposal dangerous to the Earth, but so is their production!

Every single bottle has to be manufactured and transported

This uses fossil fuels and outputs carbon emissions which directly contributes to Climate Change

Producing and Transporting bottled water costs 2000X more energy than producing and distributing tap water
