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!!!
