Every second of every day, 1,500 plastic bottles are discarded. People send more than 38 billion water bottles to landfills each year, that’s 912 million gallons of oil. 500 million drinking straws are used every day. 100 billion plastic bags pass through the hands of consumers each year, that’s almost one bag per person each day. We use 500 billion plastic cups each year, 16 billion of those are disposable coffee cups. These numbers are in the United States of America alone.

In the world we live in today, plastic is everywhere. It has become part of our daily lives - after buying groceries, we use plastic bags to carry what we bought. We drink from plastic cups, using plastic straws at our favorite fast food restaurant. Whenever we go to a store to buy water, we drink from plastic bottles. We’ve been using plastic ever since, and we use it every day. We tend to see how plastic is beneficial for us as humans, however, the convenience of plastic comes at a very high cost, for our environment, and human health.
