That’s the number of empty shampoo bottles discarded every year in the US alone. Unfortunately, the convenience of these plastic containers comes at a hefty environmental cost. According to recent estimates, billions of shampoo bottles end up in landfills or incinerators around the world, contributing to the ever-growing problem of plastic pollution.

The production of plastic shampoo bottles is a resource-intensive process that contributes significantly to carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, and the global nature of the supply chain exacerbates the CO2 emissions associated with the shampoo industry. Moreover, empty shampoo bottles contribute to the proliferation of microplastics. As plastic bottles degrade over time, they break down into smaller particles, many of which are microscopic in size. These microplastics contaminate soil, water bodies, and even the air, posing potential threats to human health and the environment. While only a small fraction of those shampoo bottles (about 9%) are effectively recycled, the rest languish in landfills or find their way into oceans, causing severe harm to marine life and ecosystems.
