It's amazing too, regarding plastic, as it is everywhere. A trip to the grocery story will confirm it. I've gone off before on plastic wrapped apples & bananas.
The following video (of the same name) from It's A Plastic World does an interesting and thorough job of showcasing just how prevalent plastic is
- The EPA has indicated 32 tons of plastic waste are created a year. (32 tons?! Plastic is light, so the vast bulk of that is hard to wrap your mind around!)
- Only 9% of that is recovered.
- All known specials of sea turtles and half the sea bird species have had run-ins with plastic (either entanglement or ingestion).
