In one year close to a jaw-dropping 300 million tons of plastic products are produced. And despite everyone being more conscientious these days, only 1 – 2% of plastic produced is actually recycled. Plastic does not breakdown naturally very easily. In fact, it takes 50 – 80 years for one plastic bag to decompose and a milk jug can take up to 500 years.
Not only is plastic production and waste bad for the environment, but also toxins such as BPA, DEHP, and BPS in plastic find their way into our food and drinks. The World Health Organization has shown that exposure to these toxins can pose potential health risks including hormonal imbalance, insulin resistance, thyroid problems, and various forms of cancer.
