Adam Lambert Speaks Out Against Plastic Pollution
Adam lambert: "plastic polluters need to fall back"
In MSNBC’s interview series, Fall Back, Ari Melber discusses the environment and the damaging effect that micro plastics have on our waterways and environment with Adam Lambert.
“It is fall back friday, what needs to fall back?”
“I think people polluting the ocean with plastic. It's a serious issue. Fish and wildlife in the ocean are literally gagging on pieces of small plastic, and It’s killing them.”
“Things as simple right now, as the fact that they're taking plastic straws away and we’re trying to replace them with paper straws.Thats a great first step. It’s good to see that something is happening.
Some 18 billion pounds of plastic waste flows into the oceans every year from coastal regions.
Less than a fifth of all plastic is recycled globally.
About 8 percent of the world’s oil production is used to make plastic and power the manufacturing of it. That figure is projected to rise to 20 percent by 2050.
40 percent of plastic produced is packaging, used just once and then discarded.
The vinyl sticker industry is a multi-billion dollar industry that is a massive contributor to the micro plastic tragedy that is plaguing our waterways and environment. At Dust City Designs, we always strive to be as eco-friendly as possible with our products. From our Wood Stickers, all the way to the shipping box, we try to make our impact as little as possible. With our Wood Stickers, we wanted all aspects to be as environmentally friendly as possible. All of our hang tags are printed on recycled content paper, from a local print shop. This means cutting down on carbon emissions made from long transportation times. Additionally, all of our stickers come packaged in a cellophane sleeve. Cellophane is a great alternative to plastic as it offers many of the beneficial qualities of plastic, without the harmful environmental effects. Our cellophane sleeves will fully biodegrade when left to the elements, leaving no trace. So join the movement to "Keep Vinyl Stickers out of our Waterways"
