Plastic Bags? NO, Thanks!
"Every time we use a new plastic bag they go and get more petroleum from the Middle East and bring it over in tankers," said Stephanie Barger, executive director of Earth Resource Foundation in Costa Mesa, California. "We are extracting and destroying the Earth to use a plastic bag for 10 minutes."
Some 13 billion plastic bags a year are given away in Britain, of which eight billion end up in landfill. Others get blown away and end up in the sea.
Once let loose into the environment, plastic bags can suffocate or slowly kill wildlife mistaking the bag for food.
HAPPY NEWS: We don't need plastic bags! Reuse the ones you have at home, if you forget, simply keep one or two in your bag or in your car. Buy or make one yourself with fabrics from old clothes.
