What Happens To Plastic You Throw Away?

I like to think I’m quite good at recycling, both at home and at work, but aside from separating my rubbish out into different bins I don’t really know what happens once it has been collected.

So, what actually happens to that plastic bottle you throw away?  Whether it is casually discarded as mixed waste or put in a specific recycling bin the consequences are very different.

The ever informative TED-Ed takes a closer look.

Worth considering next time you throw that bottle away!

    Why do blogers like pictures and videos so much? Does it take more work to read?
