Plastic Never Expires


We all pay attention to the expiration dates ON packaging. But have we ever thought about the expiration dates OF the packaging?


Milk expires in 7 days. Its HDPE jug expires in 450 years.


In 7 days, milk will spoil and re-enter the ecosystem in organic ways as water, gas, and biomass.


However, that's not gonna happen to that jug. In 450 years, if not longer, it'll remain as plastic, gradually smaller pieces and eventually micro-beads, yet, still plastic.


Made from non-renewable resources, plastics will never completely decompose, and they release toxic chemicals during use and after disposal, which harm the soil, the water, and people's health.

CHOOSE PLANT FIBER-BASED PRODUCTS.
