You might be surprised, or even disgusted, to learn that most plastic waste ends up in the environment, even when you thought it was being recycled. Research shows plastic waste most commonly leaks into the environment in the country to which it’s shipped. Plastics that you put in the recycling bin were never intended to be recycled. Instead, they were shipped to less developed countries, never expecting to be recycled.
