Campaigns to Ban Plastic Bags

  • 43,169 signatures

Over 1 trillion plastic bags are reportedly used every year worldwide and the average American family takes home over 1,500 plastic bags a year. As citizens and consumers become more environmentally concerned, a spotlight has been placed on the role plastic bags play in increasing litter, contributing to marine pollution, and negatively impacting wildlife.

For some advocates, a key strategy to combat these issues is to ban retailers and other businesses from giving out plastic bags.

People around the world are using Change.org as a platform to get rid of plastic bags in their town, city, state, province, and country.
