Kick the plastic!!

Updated: Oct 20, 2021

Why reuse instead of “recycle”. Because plastic isn’t recyclable! Plastic can be broken down and reused, if it is sorted, cleaned, and melted. The problem? It is more costly for companies to breakdown and reuse plastic than simply buying new plastic. New plastic is also better quality since each time materials are broken down, it weakens the compounds.

So while plastic can be “reused/recycled” and many companies put ♻️ on their products, that doesn’t mean the item was or will be recycled! #Greenwashing

Less than 10% of all plastics have been recycled.
