Get the Facts this Earth Month

Keep the conversation going this month, on Earth Day (April 22) and EVERY DAY. The facts about disposable plastic are staggering—ditch single-use plastic—and choose REUSE!

  • 50 percent of the plastic we use is disposable—we use only once and then throw it away.
  • Over the last ten years we have produced more plastic than during the entire previous century.
  • Enough plastic is thrown away every year to circle the Earth four times.
  • The production of plastic uses about eight percent of the world’s oil production.
  • Annually, approximately 500 billion plastic bags are used worldwide. More than one million bags are used every minute.
  • In Los Angeles, ten tons of plastic particles—grocery bags, straws and bottles—are carried into the Pacific Ocean every day.
