Plastic Pollution and Bamboo Bottles
We are drowning in plastic pollution!
Plastic pollution has become one of the most pressing environmental issues, as the meteorite rise in the production of disposable plastic products and their low recycle rate overwhelms the world’s ability to deal with them. Moreover, Single-use plastics account for 40 percent of the plastic produced every year, that may persist in our environment for hundreds of year.
Disposable plastic bottles are one of the biggest threats concerning environmentalists across the globe. Plastic Bottles are also taking a toll on your health as most of them can leach toxins, harmful chemicals like BPA into liquids, and potentially disrupt hormone levels and even cause life-threating diseases.
Distressing NumbersAround 5000 water bottles are thrown away every second, over 1.3 billion plastic bottles are produced every day, and 481.6 billion of these bottles are sold in a year! Over 91% of the plastic waste never gets recycled and either ends up in landfills, oceans, killing millions of birds, mammals, animals, and marine life every year.
As per the reports, Nearly 700 species, including endangered ones, are known to have been affected by plastics. Nearly every species of seabird eats plastics. In addition to that, an average person consumes a disturbing amount of 70,000 microplastics each year.
