Plastic Free July Challenge | Day 9

Day 9 of the Plastic Free July Challenge

It’s only one plastic pen said eight billion people.

Who are you kidding, who has only one pen?

Plastic pens are everywhere. They are at home, at workplaces, and at schools, yet they are just as polluting as plastic bags and straws.

Pens are also given away at conferences, training days, in promotional bags, trade shows, networking events, lectures, political gatherings, music festivals, marathons, and endless other business marketing opportunities.

Society has been using disposable plastic pens for over 50 years now. It’s estimated that the USA throws away 1.6 billion pens a year. If we imagine the number of pens thrown away each year by the collective people of the world – it’s mind-boggling. (Credit)

Why don’t we just have a refillable ink pen?
