Plastic & Pollution facts:
*The single most littered item worldwide is cigarette butts
*Over 100,000 marine mammals & 1 million seabirds die every year from ingestion or entanglement in plastic litter
*A plastic bottle will last for more than 450 years if left on a beach
*Worldwide, as many as one trillion plastic bags are used each year-or more than one million bags every minute. All these bags equate to around 100 million barrels of oil.
* 7 plastic checkout bags contain enough embodied petroleum energy to drive a car half a mile
* Plastic toothbrushes are made from a mix of plastic materials that combine elements of rubber, crude oil as well as some extra plastic and cardboard that goes into packaging. The manufacturing process for these toothbrushes consists of dangerous plastic by-products, oil & petroleum as well.
*Many toothbrushes end up in landfills & are enough to stretch around the earth more than 4 times
