Skipping the Single-Use Plastics at Events
We know when humans gather, we love to eat and drink…and it shows! According to recent studies, more than 100 million plastic utensils and 500 million straws are used every day in the United States alone. When calculated on a global scale, humans buy one million plastic bottles per minute. This translates to using approximately 1.6 million barrels of oil annually just producing plastic water bottles!
At MeetGreen, we applaud not only the humanitarian benefits that Clean the World and partners provide, we also appreciate the reduction in landfilled bars of soap (among other usable amenities), of which more than 2 million are thrown away daily. This is what Debi Kinney, Vice President, CSR and Hotel Business Development, had to say about the landscape Clean the World is working – and thriving – in.
