Can we live with less plastic bottles?

Can we invent a new future without all of this?

plastic bottles

What you see in this image is the average day production of a medium size business building, in one of our cities. Estimates say around 2.500/3.000 bottles sold every day to satisfy people drinking needs. And this is only a drop in the ocean of plastic produced and wasted every single day of our actual life.

Just to give a glance of the impact, the average lifespan of a plastic bottle is from 300 to 500 years. Download this fantastic poster to learn more about The most dangerous species of our coasts and lagoons.

Today is the World Environment Day 2009, so what better day to think a bit about this issue and look for some solutions?
