As the world continues to use plastic we continue to find ways to reduce it. Plastic is one of the biggest problems our planet faces. Not only is there lots of it, over 200 million tons every year to be precise, but it’s also harmful to us, the environment and other species. Unknown to most, plastic carries toxic chemicals that can alter hormones and damage our health. How do we consume these chemicals? We drink from plastic bottles, we eat from plastic containers and plastic never disintegrates, which means these chemicals end up contaminating our environment. Luckily there are ways to reuse, reduce and recycle plastic.
