How many of you use plastic bags? Okay, so how many of you REUSE those same plastic bags?
Not too many of us reuse those plastic bags until they just can’t be used anymore. I know I used to keep them in a bigger bag and they used to just sit in my kitchen closet….which I guess is better than the ocean but not by much.
Facts About Plastic ….And Our Oceans
One singular plastic cup takes OVER 60 years to FULLY decompose. That’s right….your grandchildren will still have to deal with your stupid solo cup.
That plastic bag that you just threw out, when it makes it to the ocean can single handedly killed over 1 million sea creatures a year.
It’s estimated that over 13 billion POUNDS of plastic trash is dumped into OUR oceans every year. That’s a lot.
By the year 2050 (just 32 years) plastic will outweigh living creatures in the ocean.
Only 1% of all plastic bags are actually returned to recycle.
But there’s good news…
