The above infographic and more information can be found at the source:

In 1919, 21 million glass containers were produced in the United States of America.

Now, the United States produce 40 billion glass containers a year.

That's a lot of glass. A small percentage will make its way to the beach. Small but significant.

Beach glass will not run out.
