How it Works

 Why it works

  • 23 percent of landfill waste comes from containers and packaging.

  • Each day in the US more than 60 million plastic water bottles are thrown away. Most end up in landfills or incinerators, and millions litter America’s streets, parks and waterways.

  • Only 9% of plastic packaging in the U.S. is recycled, 12% is burned and the rest ends up in a landfill—or even the sea.

  • Ocean pollution is mostly made up of plastic that finds its way into our waterways and consists of two main categories: chemical pollution and straight-up trash.

  • A million plastic bottles are bought around the world every minute and this number is set to increase by another 20% by 2021.

  • The same report said more than 480 billion plastic drinking bottles were purchased in 2016 across the world — up from 300 billion a decade ago.

  • Additionally, less than half of the bottles purchased in 2016 were recycled — with just 7% of those collected turned into new bottles, and the rest ending up in landfill sites or the ocean. 

  • In 1974, global plastic consumption per year was 4.4 pounds per capita. Today, this has increased to roughly 95 pounds — and this number is still set to increase.
