Plastic Water Bottle Pollution

Plastic Water Bottle Pollution

Did you know that every year, more than 480 billion plastic water bottles are sold? Yes, a billion dollars. There are 150 plastic bottles for every mile of shoreline in the United Kingdom. Each year, 50 billion plastic water bottles are consumed in the United States alone. In the maritime environment, a plastic bottle can endure for 450 years. Drink containers account up 14% of all litter.

Every year, plastic waste kills about 1 million seabirds and 100,000 marine mammals. Plastic is found in the guts of all young sea turtles. That's right, a hundred percent!! In our ocean, there are now 5.25 trillion macro and micro pieces of plastic, with 46,000 pieces per square mile, weighing up to 269,000 tonnes.
