It’s no exaggeration to say that the world is facing something of a plastic pollution crisis at the moment. A staggering 300 million tonnes of plastic is produced each year; if we continue at this rate, four times as much plastic as currently exists will be produced by 2050.
The main reason this level of plastic consumption is bad is due to where it ends up once it’s been discarded.
Unfortunately, the majority of plastic ends up in the ocean, having a catastrophic effect on the environment and marine life. In fact, over 100,000 marine creatures are killed each year due to the effects of plastic in their habitat, and it’s estimated there will be more plastic than fish in the ocean by 2050.
At LifestyleGarden®, we’re committed to creating sustainable yet stunning outdoor living products that not only look great, but are manufactured in ways that are kind to our planet and minimize plastic pollution.
One of the ways we honor this commitment is by partnering with other organizations that help us bring environmentally-friendly products to our customers.
