Help to BAN PLASTIC BAGS WORLD WIDE
Why shouldn't we use plastic bags? It takes 1000 years for polyethylene bags to degrade/break down. Plastic bags don't biodegrade, they photo-degrade, breaking down into smaller and smaller toxic bits contaminating soil and waterways. They then enter the food chain as animals ingest them, this is a terrible problem around the world.
It's called “The Great Pacific garbage patch,” a floating gyre the size of France made up of plastic particles. Plastic can be ingested by animals and fish endangering wildlife around the world.
