Data research shows that ↓
1.the world consumes an average of 1 million plastic bags per minute
2.The total consumption of plastics in the world is 400 million tons per year
3.At present, only 14% of plastic packaging in the world is recycled，Only 10% of them were effectively recovered
Every year, more than 100000 marine animals die because they are entangled in plastic bags or eat plastic bags by mistake. Their living space is occupied by garbage and their food is filled with garbage. One piece of garbage may lead to the extinction of marine life
The degradation time of these plastic bags thrown into the sea takes 200 ~ 1000 years. Plastic landfill occupies a lot of land, and the occupied land soil is polluted and can not be recovered for a long time. About 8 million tons of plastic waste enter the ocean every year.
Where did the plastic waste you threw away end up?
About 8 million tons of plastic waste are dumped into the ocean every year. Scientists once published an article in the British Journal Scientific Report that more than 80000 tons of waste are floating in the Pacific Garbage patches, mainly plastic bottles, plastic bags and other plastic products. These "plastic monsters" cover an area of nearly 1.6 million square kilometers, which is shocking!!!
