Single use plastics have a huge impact on earth. On average, more than 120 million plastic water bottles are used every day in the US alone. That’s a staggering number!
While we all should strive to minimize the consumption of single use plastic as much as we can, what about the ones already consumed and ready to go to the landfill or our oceans?
There is a ray of hope. Companies are making some really cool products by recycling single use plastics. And if you don’t know about the origin of the product, there is no way to tell the difference.
Thinking of buying new shoes? Don’t forget to check out these shoes made from recycled plastic bottles.
By using such products, we are not only diverting the plastic waste from landfills and oceans, we are also extending the life of this single use plastic from just a few minutes to several years! Do we need more reasons to buy them?
