According to Conserving Now,

“Plastic bags don't biodegrade, they photodegrade – breaking down into smaller and smaller toxic bits. A plastic bag can take between 400 to 1,000 years to break down in the environment. As it breaks down, plasticparticles contaminate soil and waterways and enter the food web when animals accidentally ingest them.”

More than 300 municipalities across the US have taken the step to ban these bags as a responsible step towards saving our environment. Every small step we take will help save the Earth for our children and grandchildren and their children.

By banning single use plastic bags, the City of Claremont, NH will make an important step forward to reducing needless waste in landfills and helping save this planet!
