Are you aware of the dangers of plastics to OUR environment!!!
Plastic never goes away. And it's increasingly finding its way into our oceans and onto our beaches.
One way we all can REALLY start to make a difference is eliminating SINGLE USE plastic items.
especially plastic bags
We are asking all families to try and start using re-useable bags at grocery, department, and corner stores.
When the vendors put items in a plastic bag for you, REFUSE it and carry it or use your REUSEABLE bags.
Keep some in your cars and carts so they are available when you need them.
The less we use then the less damage they can do.
The biggest problem with plastic bags is that they do not readily break down in the environment, with estimates for the time it takes them to decompose ranging from 20 to 1000 years. On top of that they are not recycled by most recycling plants and end up having to be shipped oversees to be disposed of which releases toxic chemicals when burned and is very costly.
SO HELP OUR ENVIRONMENT, THE OCEANS, AND THE CREATURES WHO LIVE THERE!
DO YOUR PART!!
