Did you know that researchers estimate about 500 billion to a trillion plastic bags are used around the globe each year?? Sadly, only 1% of single use plastic bags are recycled. The other 99% end up in our environment.
Single use plastic bags disrupt the environment in really serious ways. Not only does the production of these bags emit considerable amounts of pollution, the finished product is nearly impossible to get rid of.
The use of plastic bags is incredibly harmful to wildlife both on land and in the ocean. Animals who swallow plastic bags often suffer from intestinal obstructions, which typically lead to a long, slow and painful death. At least 267 different species have been affected by plastic pollution in the ocean and 100,000 marine animals are killed annually by plastic bags.
