Plastic Bag Tax

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!

    5 trillion plastic bags are being produced annually worldwide, which is over 700 per person on Earth and less than 1% of these are being recycled. 10% of this waste ends up in oceans causing the death of 100,000 whales, sharks, sea birds, turtles etc. each year. Creating a 10 cent Plastic Bag Tax in Bend will help reduce waste in our community which is full of beautiful wildlife. There are already enough bags in the world to reuse.
