In 1950, the world’s population was 2.5 billion people and we produced 1.5 million tons of plastic. Today, our world population is 7.8 billion people and we produce over 300 million tons of plastic. In other words, while our population has tripled during those years, our plastic production has increased at an astronomical rate. Plastic is now integrated into every aspect of our lives. Plastic can be found in our clothes, our smartphones, earbuds, homes, and our workplaces. Just try to imagine a world without it…that’s how much we are surrounded by it. But, what started as a good intention to make our lives easier and reduce the impact on our natural resources, has become a strain and choke-hold on our oceans and environment. It’s time for us to PLAN OUR PLASTIC. From the top of Mount Everest to the sidewalks of our streets to the bottom of our oceans, plastic debris is found everywhere. We have become a world of plastic consumers, and we need to change. We can do it. Humans are creative, determined, and compassionate. We can change our ways and alter our habits. We can make choices and opt out of plastic items. A plastic plan might just do the job… especially once you know that what you do, and how you do it, helps our planet survive. Planning our plastic matters.
