Eco-friendly products can help you swap out single-use plastics for good

It's no exaggeration to say that our single-use plastic consumption has gotten out of control. Approximately half of the world's plastic manufactured from 1950 to 2015 was only made in the last 13 years, and alarmingly, only 9% of all plastic discarded has actually been recycled. Much of the rest of it is buried in ever-growing landfills and is littering waterways and oceans. Sobering evidence of its effect on our world's ecosystems and environment is not hard to find.

Most importantly, if you don't see eco-conscious change happening in your community, you can use your vote, come election season, to back candidates who prioritize green initiatives on a city- and statewide level.
