It takes approximately 200 years for a plastic straw to decompose, 450 years for a plastic bottle, and even 1,000 years for a plastic bag!

Not only do they affect the ecosystem and environment, they may also enter the food chain and end up being ingested by humans. Let’s forge the good habit of plastic recycling and do our part to save the planet!
