Plastic Wars

Globally to date, there is about 8.3 billion tons of plastic in the world – some 6.3 billion tons of that is trash. Imagine 55 million jumbo jets and that's how much plastic exists here. In 1950, we created 2 million tons a year, which increased 200-fold by 2015.

🤯 That's a Lot of Plastic 🤯

So what's the solution?

What is a Circular Economy?

A sustainable business model that aims to eliminate waste in industrial systems through recycling, reduction, reuse, and recovery.
