Random Acts of Green is joining the Plastic Free July challenge, a global movement that activates millions of people to be part of the solution to plastic pollution. Why? Here are some fast facts about the problem:
Unless we take action now, there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish by 2050 (UN).
While this thought is:
. overwhelming; . scary; . daunting; and horrifying …
we CAN do something as individuals to make a difference.
We want to help YOU take action. Start by implementing some small changes to your purchasing habits this year. Simple switches here-and-there can make all the difference.
Understand that even the smallest, most everyday plastic items can stick around for a long time.
Here’s how long it takes for common-place plastics to decompose:
. Plastic Bag – 20 Years
. Coffee Cup – 30 Years
. Drinking Straw – 200 Years
. 6-Pack Rings – 400 Years
. Water Bottle – 450 Years
Coffee Pod – 500 Years
Plastic Cup – 450 Years
. Disposable Diaper – 500 Years
