Why Use Plastic

Replacing plastic with other materials could raise social and environmental costs fourfold from $139 billion to $533 billion pa (source: Trucost, Standard & Poor’s).

Using alternatives would increase the amount of energy and transportation fuel we use, raise greenhouse gas emissions and result in more litter.

Plastic keeps costs 4 x lower than other materials.
