Plastic bags cause many minor and major ecological and environmental issues. The most general issue with plastic bags is the amount of waste produced. Many plastic bags end up on streets and subsequently pollute major water sources, rivers, and streams.

Even when disposed of properly, they take many years to decompose and break down, generating large amounts of garbage over long periods of time. Improperly discarded bags have polluted waterways, clogged sewers and been found in oceans, affecting the habitat of marine creatures.

Two primary kinds of direct damage to wildlife are entanglement and ingestion.The European Parliament has voted in 2018 for a complete ban on a range of single-use plastics across the union in a bid to stop pollution of the oceans.

I proposed Teresa Padrós Casañas, the mere of my town Palau-solità i Plegamans, to ban a range of single-use plastics, especially light-weight plastic bags forever.

I urged Palauencs and Plegamanins that massively support this petition to take ownership of the damage that we are inflicting upon our local and global environment.
