A horrendous fact, presented with a lovely picture (there are uglier pictures to be found illustrating the fact that one million sea birds are killed annually from plastic waste in our oceans).
But what to do?
commit to use reusable bags instead of disposable for a whole year?
Why not start with a month? Or a week?
Or start with buying many collapsible reusable bags and putting one of them in every backpack, case or jacket to prevent forgetting them.
And be proud about yourself for every disposible bag you don’t have used.
Every step counts.
