Why We Must Reduce Reliance on Plastic – for the Environment and Our Health

On average, American households bring home as much as 1,500 plastic bags per year, however, only less than 1% are recycled. Reusable shopping bags offer the benefit of reducing the use and waste of plastic bags that litter our oceans and endanger marine life, while also being more resilient and long-lasting than single-use bags, ultimately saving you money. 

The plastic water bottles many of us drink from are made from petroleum, a crude oil or fossil fuel. In the U.S alone, it takes 1.5 million barrels of oil to meet demands for bottled water. Stanford’s School of Sustainability reported that fossil fuels drove 37 billion tons of global carbon dioxide emissions out of the total 40 billion tons measured in 2023. 

It is estimated that 1,500 plastic bottles end up as waste in landfills or thrown in the ocean every second. 

Switching to glass or stainless steel water bottles rather than plastic can also be a physically healthier alternative for you and your family. 

In January, the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), a peer reviewed journal of the National Academy of Sciences (NAS), released a study that found three popular brands of bottled water sold in the United States held between 110,000 and 370,000 microplastic and nanoplastic particles per liter of water.

In 2022, the National Library of Medicine studied the exposure routes of microplastics to identify hazards on human health and found that, “oral intake is the most evaluated and common route through which humans are exposed to nanoplastics,” citing our drinking water and food consumption of organisms and materials exposed to nanoplastics.

One of the many reasons we at Young Eden advocate for certified organic cotton clothing is to curb the health dangers and environmental damage associated with synthetic fabrics like nylon and polyester shedding roughly 500,000 microplastics per year (which we ultimately consume) via laundry wastewater.

According to research director, Jane Houlihan, at Healthy Babies, Bright Futures, an alliance of nonprofits, scientists and donors committed to reducing babies’ exposures to neurotoxic chemicals, the new PNAS study offers an opportunity to further explore potential risks of nanoplastic particles to human health.

“They suggest widespread human exposures to minuscule plastic particles posing largely unstudied risks,” Houlihan told CNN. “Infants and young children may face the greatest risks, as their developing brains and bodies are often more vulnerable to impacts from toxic exposures.”

Keeping all of this in mind, the takeaway here is to reduce your exposure to plastic. 

“We can avoid consuming foods and beverages in plastic containers. We can wear clothing made from natural fabrics and buy consumer products made from natural materials,” Houlihan said. “We can simply take stock of the plastic in our daily lives and find alternatives whenever feasible.
