91% of recycled plastic ends up in landfills. This is largely because people don't know what's recyclable or not, and it gets mixed together, and its cheaper to throw it all away then to sort it out.

Instagram Quiz Filters are widely popular among Gen Z individuals, and these help information spread fast, in a fun way.
