It’s official: Plastic is Killing Everything

As a direct result of how we live our day-to-day lives, we are experiencing the fastest rate of extinction in history (Katz, 2018). Every minute, a truck load of plastic is dumped into the ocean; and every day animals die as a result. It’s even in our food and contaminating our bodies. If we don’t cut our dependence on this toxic substance, this trend will only become more catastrophic.

Who Plastic Pollution Affects and How

  • Marine creatures, birds, and countless land mammals die every year from suffocation, starvation, overheating and dehydration as a result of plastic being littered across the world (Plastic Statistics)
  • Coral reefs see an 85 percent increase in contracting terminal disease after coming into contact with plastic (NPR)
  • Two-thirds of the world’s fish stock has suffered
  • Scientists have identified 200 ‘dead zones’ where no living organisms can grow as a result of plastic blocking out sun, leaching chemicals, etc.
  • 93 percent of HUMANS over the age of six test positive for BPA. Which is known to cause reproductive, cardiovascular, brain and other organ problems

In Just One Year….

  • 4 million tons of plastic are dumped into the ocean
  • You generate roughly 1,606 pounds of waste
  • 273 sea turtles are killed
  • Countless land mammals die
  • Over 100,000 marine mammals die
  • Over 1 million birds die
  • 20 children die from plastic bags (Plastic Statistics)

What You Can Do

These numbers may be staggering but there really is a simple solution.

Stop using plastic!!

JOIN THE MOVEMENT!

It's time to tell retailers and manufacturers that we want new technologies to replace plastic waste.

The government hasn't taken the steps necessary to ban plastic waste so it's up to us - the consumer - to petition retailers and manufactures for change.

The technologies exist to create refill stations at your local retail store so why you haven't seen them? Retailers and manufacturers are hesitant to install refill stations because it's a huge industry shift and, most importantly, they have no idea that consumers want it.

When it comes to change, consumers have to take charge. It's time for you to get involved and tell retailers and manufactueres that #WeWantRefill.

The #WeWantRefill movement is gaining momentum, but more must be done. To show retailers how serious you are about using refill technology, please take a minute to sign this petition to send a clear message to retailers that it's time to refill, not waste.
