Plastics

Plastic is a hot topic of discussion right now, but why? The main reason is that since we started producing this amazing material, none of it has gone away, and it is accumulating in our seas, rivers, deserts and countryside at an alarming rate (current estimates indicate about 6.4 million tons a year). Plastic is a man-made material which means there are very few organisms that can naturally break it down. Unlike organic debris which is biodegradable, plastics only disintegrate into ever smaller pieces and this process continues right down to molecular level.

​The result of this is that some plastics may stay in the environment for up to 1,000 years…

We all need to take this problem seriously and reduce our plastic imprint. Now.
