What Happens When You Throw Away Plastic?

You may not think twice when you toss a plastic bottle into the nearest dumpster in Chicago. In this video, however, you will take an in-depth look at what happens when you throw away plastic. Since plastic is not biodegradable, it will last for thousands of years before it ever begins to decompose. To ensure that you are doing your part to protect the environment, make sure to always recycle, rather than toss, your plastic bottles.
