Did you know that a plastic bag can spend from 15 years up to 1000 decomposing and breaking down, depending on the condition of your environment?
Plastic bags are not bio-degradable unlike paper bags. However they tend to break down the process of photo degradation. This phenomena is mainly induction of the decomposition process via the exposure to light. Once the bag is exposed to light they happen to break down into miniature toxic particles.
You Get To Stop Feeding Animals Plastic
According to an estimation, around one million birds and around 100,000 turtles and an innumerable number of other sea creatures die due to ingesting plastic. These animals confuse the floating plastic bags with edible sea creatures the likes of plankton and jellyfish. And once the animals ingest the plastic bags they starve to death as the plastic happens to block the digestive tract.
