Plastic Bags

Plastic bags start out as fossil fuels and end up as deadly waste in landfills and the ocean. Birds often mistake shredded plastic bags for food, filling their stomachs with toxic debris. For hungry sea turtles, it’s nearly impossible to distinguish between jellyfish and floating plastic shopping bags. Fish eat thousands of tons of plastic a year, transferring it up the food chain to bigger fish and marine mammals. Source: biologicaldiversity.org

Plastic and Marine litter is considered as a long-lasting threat to the environment since it is not easily degraded: UV-radiation and thermal energy induces weathering and causes the plastic to fragment into small pieces called microplastics. Without further biodegradation carried out by micro-organisms, both large plastic litter and fragmented pieces are assumed to persist in the marine environment even hundreds of years. (Blastic.eu)

Of all single-use litter in the UK, plastic makes up 85% - a horrifying statistic!
