Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 The Impact of Plastic Bottles In AU Campus Plastic 86.66% The convenience of consumption has allowed us to fulfill our everyday needs and desires without much hindrance and much cost. Every process in our daily activities of consumption have been optimize for our comfort; from picking products neatly arranged, to paying for them with the swipe of a card. However, when we buy, use, and dispose these products we rarely ever think about the waste we are producing. The kings of human waste are our plastic products; bags, wrappers, bottles, and containers. All of them are produced from petroleum by products, thus toxic when they disintegrate, not to mention they last a very long time and no natural processes can break them down to harmless compounds. Needless to say, these products are extremely harmful to the environment. Yet, in the AU campus, plastic bottles are as common as the students' uniforms; almost everyone has one bottle, if not, two. So why are we using so many bottles, and just how many? According to data which we have gathered through recorded observations and personal interviews, we will try to shine some light on to these two questions. After multiple observations around convenience stores across in the campus, we have come up with these data which have been put into graphs. Figure 1, shows the type of liquid containers bought by individuals. It is clear from the graphs that the most popular type is the plastic ones; almost 9 out every 10 bottles bought are made out of plastic. This isn't surprising because plastic bottles are the most convenient option. In addition, our observations has yielded that only 7.69% of the plastic bottle bought contains more than 1.5 Liter of water or drinks. J U S T H O W M A N Y ?
