500 billion plastic bottles are used every year. Meaning there are 66 times as many bottles as there are humans on the planet.
These bottles can last for 450 years if they are not recycled and it is estimated that only half of used plastic water bottles are recycled, and many of these will not actually be used to make new bottles.
That’s why this month we’re challenging you not to bottle it! Don’t use any single-use plastic bottles this month. Instead, make sure you always have a reusable one handy so you’re never caught out.
