#DontTrashLISound – 3 (Summer 2019)

 

Here’s the plastic waste problem in a nutshell. According to Plastic Oceans, humans produce over 300 million tons of plastic every year, 50% of which is for single-use purposes. More than 8 million tons of plastic are dumped in our oceans every year. These plastics are utilized by humans for just a few moments, but remain in the ground or the oceans for hundreds of years because plastics do not break down easily. Tomorrow we describe what you can do about it to help protect #LISound and Break the #SingleUsePlastic Habit. #DontTrashLISound.
