Planet vs. Plastics

While plastic has many useful and vital applications, we have become overly dependent on single-use plastic that largely ends up in landfills and waterways, posing threats to human health and the environment.    

Meteoric Rise of Single-Use Plastics: 

  • Synthetic plastics are almost entirely produced by fossil fuels  

  • The availability of fossil fuels provides product manufacturers with an alternative to using non-fossilized materials, like wood, metal, cotton, and animal bone 

  • Plastic’s durability and flexibility make it functional for a wide range of applications 

  • Since the 1950s, humans have produced more than 8.3 billion metric tons of plastic  

  • Nowadays, single-use plastic makes up 50% of all plastic production  

The Plastic Pollution Crisis: 

  • Plastic never fully breaks down, so plastic trash has been piling up for decades  

  • 79% of all plastic ever created still sits as trash in landfills or the environment  

  • More than 14 million tons of plastic pollute our oceans annually  

  • Microplastics have entered our food web and can be found in human bodies 

  • Humans are estimated to consume over 40 pounds of plastic in their lifetime 

  • Toxic microplastics in humans can release detrimental hormone disrupting chemicals 

Taking Action: 

  • Reduce single-use plastic consumption by going reusable wherever possible – water bottles, shopping bags, and containers are good places to start  

  • Shop locally to reduce the amount of packaging associated with your consumption habits   

  • Go from ownership to usership, and see how you can share items with others where appropriate 

SEE Centennial

As Earth Day celebrations get underway, it’s also important to note the many ways in which Promenade Saucon Valley and its management company, Centennial, have been responsible stewards of the environment in Center Valley. Centennial created its “SEE Centennial” program to help lead the properties it manages toward the goal of making the next evolution of each shopping center a greener one. SEE Centennial was built on the three cornerstones of Sustainability, Efficiency and the Environment, something each of the company’s owned or managed shopping centers is encouraged to embrace.
