2. We currently recover only five percent of the plastics we produce.


3. The production of plastic uses around eight percent of the world’s oil production.


4. It takes 500-1,000 years for plastic to degrade.


5. Plastic constitutes approximately 90 percent of all trash floating on the ocean’s surface.


6. One million sea birds and 100,000 marine mammals are killed annually from plastic in our oceans.


7. Plastic chemicals can be absorbed by the body.


8. Some of these compounds found in plastic have been found to alter hormones in humans.
