We are concerned by the amount of single-use plastic bags we use daily.
These plastic-bags have been finding their way into ocean food chains for a long time, and now they are starting to turn up in the fish we eat, and in the sea salt we sprinkle on your chips. Meanwhile, while you're reading this, they are being used eaten by seabirds, fish, turtles and whales, which die with stomachs full of plastic, assuming they’ve not been unlucky enough to get ensnared and killed by plastic before then.
You may ask: "What's the solution?"
The solution ♻️
The solution remains in the Recycling from the Source ♻️
And we at PLASTinkers are making it easier for you to:
- Start recycling your single-use plastic bags
