Shocking … shockingly WRONG
Yes, the plastic pollution epidemic has spun out of control. We are creating and using much more plastic than we should, especially considering how recycling has taken such a hit recently. China, our top customer of plastic recyclables, has stopped purchasing from the US, mostly due to our inability to separate recyclables from trash. This has caused our own recycling centers to become overburdened and unable to keep up with the amount we are dropping into the blue bins daily.
