One million plastic bottles are sold across the globe every single minute. And, that number is expected to climb. Considering that recycling plastic rates are less than stellar (only about 9% of plastic is actually recycled), many of these bottles are ending up in the environment where they are ingested by animals and can break down into harmful microplastics.
How can we kick this habit? It’s easy - keep a reusable cup or bottle with you in your car or bag. An added benefit of making the switch is that many coffee shops will give you a discount for bringing your own cup!
