PLASTIC POLLUTES.

Only 10% of plastic is recycled resulting in 8.9 million tons of pollution. Production of plastic bottles is drastically worse on our ozone. If everyone switched to cartons we'd offset as much pollution as NYC generates monthly.

Recycling
Isn't Enough

We're producing more than we can sustainably manage. We need to analyze the effects of production on the environment.
