GROMS AGAINST PLASTIC

#GromsAgainstPlastic

Plastic pollution affects every waterway, sea, and ocean in the world.

When we pollute our water systems, we’re putting our own health at risk as well as endangering the lives of aquatic animals.

 

The United States produces 24 billion pounds of plastic packaging annually.

14 billion pounds of garbage, mostly plastic, is dumped into the ocean every year.

Every plastic bag cost 2-5 cents to produce and cost 17 cents to clean up.

Americans purchase 28 billion water bottles every year.

Each year 1,000,000 sea birds and 100,000 marine mammals die from ingestion of or entanglement in plastic.

Every plastic bag cost 2-5 cents to produce and cost 17 cents to clean up.
