What is the average plastic use, per person, per year? We explain right below:
Global average: ~110 lb / 50 kg
Europe: ~66 lb / 30 kg
USA: ~185 lb / 84 kg
Europe: ~66 lb / 30 kg

How long does it take for plastic waste to decompose?

It is estimated that only 5-10 % of the world’s plastic is recycled. More than 30 % of it ends up in a landfill, and around one third – in the oceans. How embarrassing. We’ve even created a new continent – a mass of plastic waste the size of Europe.

So, how long does it take for plastic garbage to decompose? Scientists estimate that plastic can take more than 500 years to degrade, but for the specific items this time can be shorter:

  • plastic bag 10-1000 years
  • grocery bag 10-20 years
  • foam plastic cup – 50 years
  • plastic disposable cup, plate – 400 years
  • disposable diaper – 450 years
  • plastic bottle – 450-500 years
