One good reason to recycle plastic is that there is just so much of it.
Plastics are used to manufacture an incredible number of products we use every day, such as beverage and food containers, trash bags and grocery bags, cups and utensils, children’s toys and diapers, and bottles for everything from mouthwash and shampoo to glass cleaner and dishwashing liquid. And that’s not even counting all the plastic that goes into furniture, appliances, computers, and automobiles. A recent Forbes study said that out of one million plastic bottles sold every second around the world, only 90,000 are recycled. Shocking facts but it is true. We are choking our planet with plastic at a terrifying pace.
Did you know that for every 1 ton of plastic that’s recycled , 7 yards of landfill space is saved. By recycling Plastic, you can also save 80% of the energy used to produce these plastic items. Plastic is a versatile recyclable and can be used to make clothes, carpets, containers, bottles,grocery bags, plastic lumbar etc.
