What is single-use plastic? Those are items that are made from plastic and that are only used once (or for a very short period of time). So they have a very short lifespan but after they are discarded they end up in the landfill. It takes most plastic items for more than 400 years to decompose. The landfill grows, the ocean is littered with plastic and there is a more and more negative impact from plastic pollution. And this can be easily solved by introducing a reusable eco-friendly alternative.
