Counterattack the Discarding Crisis, one container at a time

In this plastic-filled world, staying away from polyethylene and single-use containers might seem like a real challenge. But a small adjustment in some of your habits can be a real game-changer.

Single-use plastic containers seem to have been taking over our lives for the past 70 years.

Just picture this: one garbage truck full of plastics is discarded into our oceans every minute!

Did you know that…?

  • Only 9% of the plastic gets to be recycled

  • 12% of the plastic is incinerated

  • 79% of the plastic ends up in landfills or the ocean

And guess what… beverage containers represent 14% of all that litter found in freshwater environments. 

Containers and packaging produce 80 million tonnes of waste every year in the US alone. Single-use beverage containers contribute to all those environmentally-harmful stuff that you want to avoid: greenhouse gas emissions, toxicity, litter, and indiscriminate energy consumption.
