This is a huge problem to the environment and heaps of animals are being killed because of this. It's an incredibly important issue. Sign this to save our aussie animals. 

Plastic Bag Facts:
The average plastic bag is used for only 5 minutes, yet can take up to 1,000 years to break down in the environment.

Turtles, dolphins, and whales can choke or starve by confusing plastic bags for jellyfish.
On land, plastic bags kill native birds, fauna, and other animals. Also 100,000 animals are killed each year by plastic bags.

Every piece of plastic ever made still exists. There are approximately 46,000 pieces of plastic floating in each square mile of the world's oceans.
