"9.1 billion tons of plastic created to date." How heavy is one plastic bag? Hardly anything! Emily De Sousa details what that weight means in visual terms in her TEDxKanata talk from last year.
♳ As for straws... she mentioned that 57,000,000 straws are used daily in Canada.
♳ She also mentions major numbers regarding how much oceanic plastic we eat annually through seafood.
Through her TEDx Talk, she voices her love of our planet, lots of those statistics mentioned above (and many more), and the fact that we all need to be doing something for sustainability. There are so many simple things we can all do.
