The New York Times - Bottled Water or Tap: How Much Does Your Choice Matter?

Our world is awash in plastic and the massive numbers used to communicate the enormity of the problem can make it hard to conceptualize and relate to our daily habits. Thankfully, The New York Times recently created a great tool to help all of us better understand the real world consequences of our single-use plastic consumption.

We encourage you to take the quiz they created, find out if your daily habits are improving the problem or compounding it, and learn what easy steps you can take to eliminate single-use plastics in your life.
