As a human species, we’ve made great strides. In the last 25 years – the size of computers has gone down from filling an entire room to the palm of our hands. That’s pretty cool. We’ve also made great strides with plastics. The laptop that I’m writing on is made of plastic, which makes it durable and affordable. We use plastic lunch boxes, plastic chairs, plastic in our phones.. Everywhere.
But we really messed up when it came to plastic bags. Millions of plastic bags are being used every day. These bags are not recycled and end up in our ecosystem. Plastic bags choke the earth everyday and we’re just not doing enough to change that.
They carry toxins and use our resources
