Putting Plastic in the Past
There is about 1 ton of plastic for every human on this planet. We all need to fight this environmental justice crisis. This timeline is a collaboration between the Sierra Club NYC Group’s Plastic Pollution Committee and Project Defeat Denial. It includes week-by-week suggestions to help guide you away from plastic items in your life by swapping some everyday items. Remember that these are just suggestions for how you can replace some of the plastic items you use, since using what you have until its end-of-life is usually better than buying new.
