Did you know that plastic bag can take up 350 years to break down naturally??!?

That means that the plastic bags you use will still be our ground in 2360! That also means that if King Charles 2nd used plastic bags.. we would still be digging them up!

Fortunately for King Charles 2nd plastic bags weren’t invented till the 1950’s.

Since that 1950’s we have gotten very efficient at wasting! –

It is estimated that we use over 500 billion plastic bags annually. 500,000,000,000 plastic bags used per year.

Or in other words, that’s almost 1 million plastic bags used per minute.
