Just how bad is it?

Our planet and humanity is facing a global plastic crisis. Every year, enough plastic waste is produced to circle the Earth four times. Half of these plastics are used only once before being discarded and a whopping 8 million tonnes of plastic enter our oceans each year.

 

It’s time to act

Single-use plastics are used on average for a few minutes, yet take thousands of years to break down. Millions of marine creatures and birds are killed every year by plastic pollution. Ingested plastics are also entering into our food chain, with the potential to cause us all harm.

 

Closer to home?

Singaporeans use at least 1.76 billion disposable plastic items a year, or the equivalent of one plastic item per day per person. This includes a staggering 467 million single-use plastic bottles, enough to fill 94 Olympic-sized pools! Only an estimated 6% of our plastic waste gets recycled.
