The Plastic Problem

According to the United Nations Regional Information Centre, every year over 12 million barrels of oil are used to make the 102 billion plastic bags that are used in the United States, and about 2,480,000 tons of plastic bottles and jars are disposed of annually around the world.

Not only does this pollute waterways and create huge amounts of excess landfill, but they are bad for the Environment on every level, as well as often being harmful to your health.

eWater Systems is a major advocate of reducing our use of plastic, and we would like to encourage all of our clients, partners, and friends around Australia and the world to be more conscious of their plastic use too.

Australian Ethical recently released a handy 22 tips to stop using plastic, which we think are some useful and pragmatic steps that anyone can take.
