Plastic pollution or waste is plastic that isn’t recycled and ends up in landfills and adversely affects our environment, wildlife and people. It pollutes our land, oceans, rivers, lakes and can take 50 to 400+ years to decompose depending on the type of plastic. By reducing the use of plastics, it saves energy, reduces greenhouse gases, reduces the amount of waste that needs to be recycled and saves money.
