Here are a few of our favorite facts in regards to why we are urging you to make the very important choice to put down your paper and plastic and protect your Earth today! It is our belief that within five years over 90% of the country will be using a reusable bag in every field!! Its time to wake up and smell the coffee as we say !
Few Examples why
- A Plastic bag takes 450 years to biodegrade. Imagine 10 billion of them!
- The production of Paper bags causes 70% more pollution than Plastic.
- When Plastic “photo degrades” it ends up in our oceans. Incidentally, it appears much like plankton, and is then consumed by fish. Fish eat it, and it winds up on your dinner table.
- The recipe for making paper bags starts with 1 part pulp, 400 parts WATER. What a waste of water !!!
- The recycling of plastic emits heavy metals into the air causing extreme air pollution.
- An average person will use over 350 bags in a single year.
