Play a game of true and false to learn about plastic in our world. Explore how it impacts animals, energy and water.
Although there are many practical uses for plastic, it has become a major pollutant. Most plastics are made from fossil fuels, a resource we are ‘running out of’ and does not biodegrade.
Items made of plastic like disposable water bottles, straws, and bags are used only once and then discarded, and found in landfills and oceans around the world.
We use energy and water to produce the plastic, use it once and then throw it away. While some of these items can be recycled, it takes considerable energy and water and often it is not economical. By making choices to use re-usable bags, bottles and containers, we are doing our part to reduce energy, water and help keep our oceans plastic free.
