Plastic oxygen.Breath in, Breath out. In that one second 160,000 plastic bags where created. In the next second 160,000 more have been produced. We use plastic bags like we use oxygen. Every second, minute, every hour, more of these environmentally damaging products are created, only to immediately go to landfills where they photo-degrade and absorb toxins that will continue to pollute our environment. We use plastic bags like they grow on trees. While they might be a faster and easier choice, a reusable bag is a safer and healthier choice. Plastic oxygen will never be a thing.
