Help make a difference for the Environment 1

I would like to ask that you start making a difference for the environment. Not because of global warming or for any reason other than it’s the right thing to do. We all love a clean and beautiful country/city/town/village to live in, so lets get this in motion and boycott plastic bags. We need as much people as possible to make this a successful experience..

  • Billions if not trillions of plastic bags are consumed each year worldwide.
  • Only 1% are recycled.
  • It costs $4000 to process and recycle 1 ton of bags which is then sold for a mere $32.
  • Approximately 8 million lbs are dumped into the worlds oceans annually.
  • Using one cloth bag eliminate 6 bags/wk, 24/month, 288/yr, 22,175 over the average human lifetime!
  • If 1 of 5 people switched to cloth bags, we could save 1,330,560,000,000 plastic bags over our lifetime.
  • Plastic bags are made from oil which creates wars and destroys environments.

Do the right thing and make a difference by NOT USING PLASTIC BAGS!!!

    As Belizeans, we do need to be more environmentally conscious. We need to stop that habit of always asking for plastic bags whenever we buy a product. A nice handbag is indeed a better option.
