Start YOUR Own Ban

Did you know that less than 1% of plastic bags are recycled?

According to this video, the cruel truth is that it costs $4,000 to process and recycle one ton of plastic bags which can then be sold on the commodities market for $32.

What's worse: plastic bags do not biodegrade, they photo degrade. Over time they break down into smaller, more toxic petro-polymers which eventually contaminate soil and waterways everywhere.

Plastic has entered the food chain. The ratio of plastic to plankton, which the fish eat, is anywhere from 6:1 to 46:1, depending on where you take the sample.

Our oceans are full of plastic today, and this is especially devastating for sea life.

Plenty of towns and countries around the world have a ban or are moving toward banning plastic bags, from Rwanda to Norway.

If only 1 in 5 people cut out using plastic bags, we would eliminate 1,330,560,000,000 bags in a lifetime.

In YOUR lifetime, you can eliminate thousands and thousands of these toxic things starting right now.

Start you own ban: Be the 1 in 5!
