Plastics are polluting our environment, harming wildlife and impacting our health. And it goes beyond what can be seen: When plastics break down in sewers, rivers and landfills, they leave behind microplastics. Even bottled water contains minuscule bits of plastic waste.
It's time to change our habits and go beyond recycling, especially since China and India are no longer accepting U.S. plastic waste.
