Did you know that in less than 50 years, our annual consumption of plastic bags has increased from zero to over 500 billion? Plastic is everywhere–in our oceans, streets, and landfills…and it lasts for a LONG time! Places around the world like Australia, China, Denmark, and the Philippines have either banned plastic bags entirely or tax their use. This Earth day, @EarthDayNetwork is catalyzing a movement to reduce plastic waste with their #EndPlasticPollution campaign. Check out the @EarthDayNetwork link in our bio.
