Why Plastic Waste is a C-Suite Issue

"76% of all plastic has ended up as waste, and nearly 50% of the plastic waste we produce each year is used just once. In the time it takes you to read this article, about 5 million single-use plastic bottles will be discarded. The single-use packaging that we throw away each year represents $100 billion of economic value. Recouping those losses and developing solutions to preventing plastic waste more broadly could amount to a trillion-dollar opportunity. It’s time for members of the C-suite to embrace that opportunity."
