Earth Day Challenge Day 5: Say no to single-use plastics!
April 5, 2020
Did you know we produce 300 million tons of plastic waste annually? Plastics meant for single use accounted for a large part of this waste. Plastic items like straws, utensils, and water bottles can easily be replaced with more sustainable and reusable options.
Check out this interactive feature on the United Nations Environment site and learn more about plastic waste: https://www.unenvironment.org/interactive/beat-plastic-pollution/
