Toxic chemicals leach out of plastic and are found in the blood and tissue of nearly all of us. Exposure to them is linked to cancers, birth defects, impaired immunity, endocrine disruption and other ailments. Americans discard more than 30 million tons of plastic a year. Only 8 percent gets recycled. The rest ends up in landfills, is burned or becomes litter. Mind you, plastic does not degrade.
Did I mention, there are thousands of landfills in the United States and buried beneath each one of them, toxic chemicals from plastics drain out and seep into groundwater, flowing downstream into lakes and rivers? Small fish eat micro-plastics and big fish eat small fish. So plastic is ending up in almost all life in the water and on land.
This is why I am so over plastic and working on being mindful when I’m shopping so I can avoid buying plastic and contributing to this destructive cycle.

🗣️ Why we need to avoid plastic
