A report from the Ellen MacArthur Foundation predicts that by 2050, plastic in the oceans will outweigh fish. If we keep disposing of plastic at the rate we're going, in 31 years there will be about 850-950 million tons of plastic in the ocean, and only 812-899 million tons of fish.

If Cobourg Shoppers gets 100-200 customers per day and each customer uses an average of 2 bags, that's 2.4-4.8 POUNDS of plastic bags being used IN ONE DAY.

THATS 16-33 POUNDS A WEEK AND 870-1600 LBS A YEAR!

Where do you think all that plastic goes? if you think it's recycled, you're wrong. It's a fact that 91% of all plastic ends up in our oceans and landfills. This is going to have so many negative consequences on our future. On your children's future and your grandchildrens future... it's already affecting us now! So if you have the power to make some kind of change, why wouldn't you?
