50 million barrels of oil are used to pump, process & refrigerate single-use bottled water a year. A million plastic bottles are bought around the world every minute. In the UK alone, we use 38.5m plastic bottles every day – only just over half make it to recycling. Whilst more than 16m are put into landfill, burnt or leak into the environment & oceans. The amount of plastic produced in a year is roughly the same as the entire weight of humanity.
More than 480 billion plastic drinking bottles are consumed every year. Fewer than half of these bottles are collected for recycling, with each taking over 450 years to break down. Between 5m and 13m tonnes of plastic leaks into the world’s oceans each year to be ingested by sea birds, fish and other organisms. Experts warn that some of it is already finding its way into the human food chain. Plastic production is set to double in the next 20 years and quadruple by 2050, so the time to act is now.
