Not So Fun Facts About Plastic Waste
The United States produces 42 metric tons of plastics every year, the most in the world.
Every year, 500 billion plastic bottles are produced globally.
There is more than 150 million tons of plastic waste in the oceans.
By 2050, ocean plastic will likely overtake the number of fish.
In the last 10 years, the world has produced more plastic products than in the previous century!
In 2020, we generated globally more than 500 million tons of plastic waste, 900% more than in 1980.
Single-use plastics have an average useful life of 12-15 minutes and can take up to 500 years to disintegrate.
NexTrex® Plastic Bag & Film Recycling Programs
Looking for a project that gives back to your community and helps our planet at the click of your fingertips? Below is information on how your garden club can participate in a plastic recycling program that benefits your club, community and repurposes plastic that was destined for the landfills!
NexTrex® offers a COMMUNITY & UNIVERSITY RECYCLING PROGRAM!
Trex® is proud to sponsor local recycling programs in universities and communities throughout the country. If your team can collect more than 500 pounds of plastic refuse in a six-month span (about 40,500 plastic bags), we will donate a high-performance composite bench to your school or community.
