How long until it’s gone?

How long wast takes to decompose

[infographic by Oliver Lude Gestaltung]

What happens to your trash? It’s pretty frightening, the amount of plastic that’s caught up out there in the ocean. Even more frightening is how long it will take for the waste to break down…

We’re posting this because it’s World Oceans Day tomorrow, and hopefully the stats shown on this infographic will make at least one person say no to a plastic shopping bag, or perhaps inspire them to pick up a piece of trash on the beach. Every little bit helps.
