Americans throw out 100 billion plastic bags each year. We use 60,000 of them every five seconds. Such widespread use causes the deaths of over 100,000 seabirds, dolphins, whales, and other sea animals each year. They mistake these bags for food, ingest them and die horribly or become entangled in the plastic and suffocate to death.
The average schookid’s lunch uses 4 plastic bags. Multiply that by 5 days a week and that’s a lot of plastic.
