Abstract

The average time for a plastic bottle to biodegrade fully is around 450 years, depending on the type of plastic. Plastic bottles are made from petroleum-based products and oil is a fossil fuel with a limited supply that is constantly in high demand. According to the American Chemistry Council, recycling 1 ton of plastic bottles saves the approximate equivalent of 3.8 barrels of oil. Recycling existing bottles to create new plastic materials reduces the need for oil.
