Ban the bag

May 8, 2012

Infographics have a way of really getting to the heart of the matter and this one about the plastic bag is no exception. Look at all the places in the world that have taken steps to ban the plastic bag — and then look at the U.S. Ok, California, you are awesome, but it’s time for the rest of the country to catch up.

To give you some perspective, anywhere from 4 – 5 trillion plastic bags are used worldwide annually. Trillion. And those plastic bags don’t biodegrade (within any reasonable amount of time anyway); they will only photo-degrade, meaning break up into smaller and smaller pieces.
