In the end, only 10% were effectively recycled
About 8 million tons of plastic waste enters the ocean every year
It all adds up to 420 times around the earth

Died from being entangled in plastic bags or accidentally ingesting plastic bags
Their living space is invaded by garbage

Start with these nine little things

◆ 1. Prepare a reusable shopping bag and bring it with you whenever you go shopping.

◆ 2. Limit the consumption of bottled water, it is best to prepare a recyclable water bottle. Data shows that more than 1 million bottles of drinking water are sold every minute around the world. Bottled water is one of the main sources of plastic waste.

◆ 3. Abandon disposable coffee cups and buy a good-looking and practical cup. Disposable coffee cup lids are mostly plastic products.

◆ 4. Eat less chewing gum, as they contain plastic and certainly cannot be recycled.

◆ 5. Avoid using cleaning products containing plastic microbeads. Plastic microbeads are solid plastic particles with a diameter of less than 5 mm, which are widely used in toothpaste, facial cleanser, shower gel and other cleaning products. Microbeads will pollute the environment and destroy marine ecology.

◆ 6. No disposable razors.

◆ 7. Replace plastic containers with cardboard boxes.

◆ 8. Use airtight jars and fresh-keeping boxes to preserve food, and discard fresh-keeping bags.

◆ 9. No plastic straws. If you really need it, choose paper straws, or edible straws made of seaweed.
