- Plastic wrap in its commercial form is nearly impossible to actually recycle.
- This means, nearly all of it ends up in the landfill, or worse, incinerators where it releases dioxin when burned.
- Not that sitting around the landfill is any better. There, it will stay in its plastic form forever. Or, it will slowly break down, releasing its petroleum-based chemicals into waterways.
- In the ocean, plastic wrap attracts bacteria and metal pollution. Making it a floating ball of delicious-looking toxins. Frequently mistaken for jellyfish, plastic wrap is deadly when eaten. (Source)
