The Life Of Plastic

  • 1st July 2021 to 31st July 2021
  • Buy The Kilo, No 3 The Sidings, Tynemouth Metro Station, Tynemouth, Tyne and Wear, NE30 2TF

Buy The Kilo is a plastic-free dried foods and household goods shop in Tyneside with monthly changing exhibitions of environmental art - what better place to exhibit prints of these paintings?

A million plastic bottles are bought around the world... a moment on the lips leads to several lifetimes on the tips. Many will find their way to the ocean where plastic pollution kills marine mammals and turtles and over a million sea birds each year.

Plastic bags take up to 300 years to fragment but remain in the environment indefinitely and sadly 1in 3 fish caught for human consumption now contain plastic

#PlasticFreeJuly is the perfect time to cut out single use plastic.
