Courtesy of Pat Byington, The Green Register Editor
Some of the facts:
* Every hour, Americans use 2.5 million plastic bottles;
* Every week, around the world we go through 10 billion plastic bags;
* Every year, we create enough plastic film to shrink wrap the state of Texas;
* Every piece of plastic ever made still exists today!
Solutions? Seek alternatives to plastics. Use your own bottle. Use your own reusable bags. Recycle whenever possible.
