It’s believed that there are 5.25 trillion pieces of plastic debris in the ocean.
Plastic bags are a part of that… yes they are easy to grab at the counter and only cost pennies, but it is a bad habit we just need to break. The less people buy plastic bags the less demand there will be for them, in tern, reducing the production of them!
Shoppers worldwide are using around 500 billion single-use plastic bags per year, yes per year! You could circumnavigate the planet 4,200 times if you joined them end to end. Sadly, around 100,000 marine creatures a year die from plastic entanglement.
So break the habit by collecting reusable bags, there are so many small businesses (including us) selling reusable shoppers that are better for the environment, they are completely versatile and you can get some great patterns and colours! So make the change today and buy your first reusable shopper or add to your growing collection!
