Saturday, June 8th 2019, 12:45 pm - You've probably heard about your carbon footprint, but have you ever considered your plastic footprint?
As we recognize and embrace Plastic Free July, it's hard to overlook what a mess humans have made of the water that covers more than 70 per cent of the planet's surface.
A good place to start is by surveying how much plastic you actually use in a year. Fortunately, there's a calculator for that. Designed by PhD students at the AGH University of Science and Technology in Kraków, Omni Calculator will help you add up your plastic consumption for everything from plastic bags to cotton swabs.
Check it out, below or on OmniCalculator.com, and see how big a plastic footprint you're leaving.
