Say no to plastic and shop with a reusable cotton bag
Plastic bags can easily be picked up by the wind when on their way to landfill, and are one of the worst offenders when it comes to litter in our cities and our oceans. It’s definitely time we changed our habits, and used a reusable cotton bag instead.
It’s not all bad news though, campaigns to cut down on plastic bag use and government intervention have led to a reduction in the number of bags being used in the UK.
But the truth is that despite the government’s efforts to add a 5p charge for plastic bags used by large-scale retailers, they’re still in use and even in smaller numbers, they’re still causing problems. Plastic bags are easily mistaken for marine life by fish and can cause health problems and death in millions of sea creatures. In May 2018, a plastic bag was even found wedged at the bottom of the world’s deepest ocean trench, an incredible 36,000 feet below sea level.
