The plastic facts
Over 8 billion tonnes of plastic have been made since mass production began in the 1950s. Only 9% of this plastic has been recycled, the other 91% sits in landfill, floats in our oceans or has been burned. What’s more, an estimated 8 million additional tonnes of plastic enter the ocean every year.
Many animals mistakenly ingest plastic believing it to be a food source. This can cause injury, suffocation, starvation and often death. Plastic contaminates our air, land, sea and can enter the human body through the food we eat, the water we drink and the air we breathe.
Did you know
disposable face masks were thrown out across the world every single day in 2020?
of these masks will end up in landfills or floating in the ocean.
Disposable masks contain plastics such as polypropylene, polyethylene and vinyl.
The plastic in masks can take hundreds of years to break down.
The masks could be releasing chemical pollutants and nano-plastics into the environment.
What can you do?
Disposable masks can’t be recycled so don’t put them in the recycling bin. Put them in the rubbish (landfill) bin
Cut or break the loops before you throw them away so animals won’t get entangled in them if they do accidentally end up in the environment
