Plastic never goes away.
In 2018, we face an existential threat to life on our planet. Fossil Fuel production is rising along with global temperature and plastic production. We are the only species that creates waste that the earth cannot digest. Plastic is designed to be resilient, and with our single-use application of this material, we are filling up our landfills and oceans from the surface to the basins with the stuff at a rate that recycling cannot ameliorate. At current rates of plastic entering our ocean, we will have more plastic than fish by weight in the year 2050.
