Product Life

Have you ever wondered how long Plastic products will live for?
Some Plastics will live longer than you!
Shocking really and Plastic is everywhere.
Plastic has only existed for the last 60-70 years.

 

Over 300 million tons of Plastic is produced every year, 50% of which is for single-use purposes – utilized for just a few moments, but on the planet for at least several hundred years. More than 8 million tons of Plastic is dumped into our oceans every year and it can take hundreds of years to break down – if at all.

Plastic cups – 450 years
