Every year, 7 billion* plastic water bottles are used in the UK.
Every day 15 million* bottles are littered, landfilled or incinerated in the UK.
Every minute, a million plastic bottles are bought around the world.
Plastic bottles are the most commonly found item in our rivers and amongst the top 10 most commonly found items on beaches across Europe and it can take 450-1000 years for a single plastic bottle to degrade. Do you need any more reasons?
