  • Reflection Question
    Community Estimate My Plastic Consumption and Go #PlasticNeutral
    What did you find out about your plastic consumption by using the calculator? What did or didn't surprise you?

    Tonia Wu 7/03/2020 10:30 AM
    According to this calculator, my annual plastic footprint is 52.26 kg - about 37% lower than the average American, about the same as the average European, and about 375% higher than the average Indian. 35% is from takeout and delivery (no surprise there). If everyone in the world consumed plastic like me, there could be more plastic in the ocean than fish by September 2043. :(
