The problem with Plastic bottles
Every minute, 1 million plastic bottles are bought in the world. And guess what? According to the National Geographic, 91% of all plastic is not recycled worldwide. So what happens to them? Best case scenario, they end up in landfill. Worst case scenario, they end up in the sea, causing harm to birds, marine animals, and fish.
Plastic cannot be 100% recycled, it can only be downcycled.
What does it mean? Unlike glass or aluminium, plastic loses quality during the recycling process, which means that it has a limited lifecycle. Typically, a plastic bottle can be turned into a lower quality plastic bottle about 2 times before it is turned into other products like doormats, textiles, plastic lumber, etc.
