Hello, Year 6 students at St George's International School, Luxembourg, need your help!
You might not be aware of it, but there's is a global problem that concerns you...
Today, we are all facing a serious worldwide problem. The issue? Plastic bag pollution.
Plastic is covering our beaches, open green spaces & is harming our oceans, which is having a detrimental effect on our planet.
Did you know, that we use 5 TRILLION plastic bags per year?! That’s 160,000 bags PER SECOND. Over 5 MILLION TONS of plastic bags end up on the ocean every year! Plastic bags aren’t biodegradable either…they only very slowly turn into tiny pieces of micro plastics.
We are buying way too many single-use plastic bags. This needs to stop!
More than 100 MILLION animals a year, die due to plastic bag pollution. Could you imagine what would happen in the next few years?!
Plastic will only start degrading after 700, yes 700 years. It then takes a FURTHER 300 YEARS to fully degrade. Currently, we recover just 5% of the plastic that we produce. This is shocking!
Here in Luxembourg, an average person uses 90 single-use bags in a year. The government are trying to reduce this to 40 bags per person by the end of 2025.
So, how can YOU help to solve this problem? When you’re going to the supermarket, take your own bags with you. DON’T buy any new ones! In Luxembourg, you can buy eco bags in all the of the supermarkets! These are re-usable & actually hold much more of your shopping, too!
We hope that our campaign video persuades local traders & businesses to act. We need to ban plastic bags in Luxembourg & look after the environment.
HELP US, TO HELP YOU & OUR WONDERFUL WORLD. BAN THE SALE OF ONE-USE PLASTIC BAGS IN LUXEMBOURG! SPREAD THE WORD!
