NOT SO FUN FACT: Did you know 1 million plastic bottles are bought EVERY MINUTE around the world? That number is estimated to exceed half a trillion by 2021. The sad fact is that less than half of those bottles end up being recycled. Too many end up in landfill or the ocean, taking an estimated 450 years to breakdown. So please remember to bring your own water bottle to the 2019 Festival on Forbes!
