What's Wrong with Plastic Bags?
Worldwide, a trillion single-use plastic bags are used annually and it is estimated that more than twenty millions bags are used in East Brunswick each year. The plastic the bags are made of does not readily degrade and remain in the environment for up to a thousand years. Discarded plastic bags threaten wildlife everywhere, take 1000's of years to break down, and pollute our oceans.
The Good News: Plastic Bag Pollution is Preventable.
Do your part and be part of the solution. If each of us uses reusable bags when shopping, we will eliminate the accumulation of plastic bags in our environment.
