Plastic remains one of the world’s most popular materials. Every year, approximately 600 billion pounds of it are made and used by the planet. This is expected to go up by 5% each year. In the United States about 107.5 billion pounds of plastics and resins were made in 2013. That represented an increase of about 106 billion pounds from the year before. Every hour, people across the nation use 2.5 million plastic bottles and commercial plastic jugs.
