YOUR PLASTIC OUR PROBLEM, Walvis Bay, Namibia AFRICA
How does this effect our environment
To date, we have produced 275 billion plastic bags world-wide in 2017 alone. For every second up to 160 000 plastic bags are being produced and used. According to “4ocean”, we will have produced 5 billion plastic bags from which 5 million plastic bags will end up in our precious ocean. Plastic is the number one and currently the most serious pollution in the ocean. Only less then 1% of the plastic bags used are properly recycled.
How do we prevent this
•By switching to environmentally friendly alternatives.
•By increasing the price of plastic bags to discourage the use of plastic bags. By $1.50
•By helping us create a successful petition.
We depend on your votes

Over 300 plastic bags are filled up to one till a day. Over ten tills are filled leaving that with 3000 plastic bags filled a day.
Plastic bags are a danger to us as people and the world.
Polluting the ocean and killing our sea life.
Over 100 000 sea animals die from plastic entanglement a year.
Over all we have learned that plastic is killing the world one plastic bag at a time.
We want to stop this and have a brighter future for us and the future generation. Paper can be a solution to reduce the use of plastic, because paper is biodegradable and a better use in general...
