International Plastic Bag Free Day

International Plastic Bag Free Day

Did you know that plastic bags can take up to 500 years to decompose? With around 500 billion plastic bags being used at a global scale, could you imagine how much litter they can create on our planet? The marine ecosystem is the main victim of this plastic pollution. International Plastic Bag Free Day is an initiative to stop single-use of plastic bags and save the environment. This day gives you a perfect opportunity to raise awareness of the detrimental effect of plastic on the environment, marine, and our health.
