According to Forbes, the overwhelming number of plastic globally purchased is expected to clime to a trillion plastic bottles per minute by year 2020. It's also predicted that by 2050, the weight of the amount of plastic in the ocean will out-weigh fish.
It's important for all of us to understand how our over-use of plastic is affecting our planet and how we can make a change. No, were not asking you to save the world. Little changes can lead to big changes. It all starts with making simple habit changes within our lives. Changes as simple as bringing your own personal water bottle or coffee mug on the go. Or perhaps, even reusing an old glass jar!
