Plastic bags are extremely harmful to the environment! People passing the highway or even local streets may see the disastrous plastic carriers blowing in the wind, resting on the side of the road, or stuck in a tree. You may see them all the time in stores, schools and virtually everywhere, but what you don't know is that after you lose the flimsy material out of your sight, it disintegrates (veeeeeery slowly) into the soil, releasing toxic chemicals. Assuming it even gets to fully disintegrate, it will run into water and contaminate pure resources. Most of the time, though, animals may eat them, get poisoned, and die. Turtles are a common beacon of the harmful effects of plastic on our environment, and the ocean is one of the main recipients of the overflow of plastic bags. Animals in both land and sea on our planet are being killed by mankind's terrible choices, and innocent creatures are paying for our callous actions. In the future, it will backfire anyway- in a few hundred years, toxic chemicals from plastic bags will corrupt our soil. You may want to help, but are you not sure about what to do? Start by signing this petition to ban plastic bags in Mill Creek, Washington, and then expand farther. You can make a difference!
