Say No to Plastic Bags!!

Thursday, February 19, 2009
As we know, every year more than 500 billion plastic bags are distributed, and less than 3% of those bags are recycled, but the others end up as litter that fouls the landscape, and kill thousands of marine mammals every year that mistake the floating bags for food.

Plastic bags that get buried in landfills may take up to 1,000 years to break down, and in the process they separate into smaller and smaller toxic particles that contaminate soil and water. Furthermore, the production of plastic bags consume millions of gallons of oil that could be used for fuel and heating.

There are many things that we can do to save our earth from plastic pollution..

  • Reduce! say no to plastic bag when you get shopping..use your reusable bag..
  • Reuse your plastic bags! don't throw it away..
  • Recycle! make something with it..

Here they are, the cool stuff made from plastic bags. pssssstt!! you can make it too by yourself..just click do it yourself and follow the instruction =D
