The Life of a Plastic Bag

Sustainable Living Group was sad, no . . . frustrated and angry, when we heard the bill to ban plastic bags in California failed in the Legislature this past Tuesday. Plastic is the number one waste product filling our landfills and spilling into our oceans. California alone consumes approximately 19 MILLION plastic bags a year as the Great Pacific Garbage Patch continues to grow.

The video below, entitled “The Majestic Plastic Bag – A Mockumentary,” is a funny, yet sadly true depiction of how our garbage ends up in the oceans. Watch this video and spread the word. Buy a reusable bag! Hint: keep extras in your car in case you forget to grab them when you go to the store!
