“About 80 percent of U.S. products are used once and then discarded.”
from Gone Tomorrow by Heather Rogers
I found this statistic while doing research for a paper. This is so sad. We need to change our outlook and realize that nothing is disposable. It goes somewhere. You may not see it anymore, but it’s still here, especially plastics. It can take plastic 1,000 years to biodegrade. Next time you throw something away, think about where it might end up.
