Plastics are a self-inflicted wound on our environment. We’ve created a total of 8.3 billion tons of plastic. That’s 8.3 BILLION TONS. That’s the equivalent of, say, 1 billion elephants. None of it is biodegradable – 79% of it has gone to landfill.
Today, I signed a Greenpeace petition asking the CEOs of Coca-Cola, PepsiCo, Nestle, Unilever, Starbucks, Procter & Gamble and McDonald’s to stop packaging with single-use plastics. It would such a simple thing for them.
