Reducing 4 More!
Just a little change can make a world of difference

PLASTIC BAGS.- How much?

How much difference can we actually make by reducing the usage of plastic bags…. I’m just one person. What can I do?

To help you understand about the difference you can make, numbers can always help.

500 billion to 1 trillion plastic bags are produced world wide annually
500 billion plastic bags are actually consumed per year annually
+That’s 1 million per minute
– The U.S. uses over 100 billion plastic bags annually
– The average Ameircan uses between 300 and 700 plastic bags per year.
– In New York City alone, if everyone uses one less plastic bag per year, it would reduce waste by five million pounds and save $250,000 in disposal costs!
– It takes 1000 years for a plastic bag to fully break down.

Were these numbers large enough?
