Plastic Crisis Challenge
What was once a futuristic, affordable product for the post WWII generation, has become a global pollution catastrophe. The United States comprises just 4% of the world's population, yet we use 24% of the Earth’s resources and have the highest rate of plastic waste (300 pounds annually) per person in the world. Join Unity’s Act for the Earth Team as we explore the devastating effects our plastic use has on oceans, ecosystems, wildlife, and the people who live near plastic production plants. Watch for weekly updates over the next two months — including a Plastic Crisis Challenge — as we invite you to join us in assessing our individual and collective potential for change!
