Why: The plastic in our seas is killing hundreds of thousands of sea turtles and other marine life each year as they often mistake it for food and ingest it. Remember that sea turtles mistake plastic bags for jellyfish, which is their favourite snack.
How: It’s simple as long as you make it a habit and never forget it at home. Rather than collecting an abundance of single use plastic bags that are not only inconvenient, but harmful to the environment and costly (plastic bag extra charge), try using a reusable shopping bag. It’s good for the environment and your pocket!
