Plastic is a versatile synthetic material and has integrated itself in human usage over the years. We wrap our food in it, store items in it, drink from it and eat off it, we have parties surrounded by plastic and even wear it; of all this plastic only 3 to 5 percent is recycled in America. Much of the rest of this plastic goes into landfills and takes 200 – 400 years to decompose.
Do you part, recycle all plastics, as they can be turned into many items from clothing to lumber and to avoid filling our landfills!
Your best option is to buy your items with glass.
