Global Waste Impact
Global Warming and Greenhouse Gas Emissions
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is the United Nations body for assessing the science related to climate change. The IPCC estimated in early 2018 it could take fewer than 12 years for greenhouse gas emissions to cause a detrimental 1.5°C of warming.
Global Plastic Waste Disposal
About 381 million tons of plastic* are produced each year globally. Over the past 40 years, the world has slowly started shifting to recycling plastics, but as of 2015, 58% was still ending up in landfills.
The time to make a change is now.
