- According to National Geographic, only 91 % of plastic isn’t recycled. So far we’ve created around 8.3 billion metric tons of plastics — most of it being disposable things that end up in trash after a single use.
- 79 % of plastic produced is accumulating in landfills or sloughing off in the natural environment as litter. That means that at some point, much of it ends up in the oceans, the final sink.
That number printed on each 500 ml bottle is the quantity of CO2 you save from releasing into the atmosphere every time you drink from your reusable bottle instead of buying a disposable option.
80 grams (0,08Kg) is the quantity of CO2 released into the atmosphere for the production of a single-use plastic bottle.
