Plastic Recycling

Why should you recycle plastic?

  • 1. It takes 10% of the fossil fuels to manufacture plastic than it does to recycle it, whereas the recovery rates are the same.
  • 2. Plastic is not biodegradable.
  • 3. Aquatic life eat plastic bags, plankton, and other small pieces of plastic, which can make it impossible for the fish to consume food and absorb oxygen, leading to death. 
  • 4. Paper bags require 13 times more energy and produce 13 times more air and water pollution than plastic bags.
  • 5. Plastic products can last up to, and sometimes in excess of, 100 years in a landfill.
  • 6. We will pay you to help save our planet.
