We’ve all heard the slogan. But do we really know why plastics are a threat to our environment? Here’s why you should say no to plastics. Plastic takes 1000 years to decompose into smaller pieces, which seep down into the soil and release chemicals, which eventually poison our soil and water supply. It fills up landfills and the very manufacture process of plastic bags uses toxic chemicals that pollute the atmosphere and consumes energy. Closer to home, our use and throw habits lead plastic to block sewage systems resulting in health hazards particularly water borne diseases. Plastic is also poisoning our rivers and oceans leading to huge losses in marine life and habitats close to it. Plastic bags are the most common cause of all these threats and the simple alternative is to say “Yes? to more environmental friendly options like bio-degradable bags made from fabric. So, Say No to Plastics. Say Yes to Life.
