Every year, humans displace 8 million tons of plastic into our planets oceans. At this rate, by the year 2050, there will be more plastic in the worlds oceans than fish. Right now, we have an opportunity to shift the tide when it comes to our consumption and disposal of plastic goods that we interact with on a daily basis.
The 1,000 milk crates that comprise Refraction are all 100% recycled from crates that have gone beyond their usable lifespan. This represents a fraction of a fraction of the volume of plastics that float, sink, and pollute our planets most valuable resource.
Together, we can begin to heal our planet. Please think before you throw away a water bottle, straw from your soda, or a disposable utensil. Help shift the collective consciousness by being the change we have to see in our world. Reduce our human impact on the planet, reuse plastic wherever possible, and recycle like your life depends on it. Post a photo of yourself with Refraction and use #rethinkplastic.
