“We can no longer wait. It’s time to stop pointing at the problem and get on with the solution. Single-use plastic is bad for people and bad for the planet. It’s time to switch to aluminum. We have to do this for our land, our oceans, and future generations.”
Mahalo, Jason Momoa
The problem with plastic...
of all the plastic ever produced has been recycled
pounds of plastic flow into the oceans every year
plastic water bottles are wasted each year
by this year there will be more plastic than fish in the ocean by weight
But what if we switch to aluminum cans?
An aluminum can is back on the shelves within this timeframe
With the right effort, oceans can be restored to former glory within a generation, say scientists (a.k.a. dolphins doing fistbumps and turtles highfiving)*
*The Guardian, 2019
of all aluminum ever mined is still used today
