Thank you for taking this survey.

Many people in the world today do not realize how much plastics are damaging our planet. Reducing plastic bag use would be one step in the right direction to lessen the problem.

Did you know?
The world's largest garbage patch is the Great Pacific Ocean Garbage Patch. It is over 3 million tons (2,000 lbs = 1 ton) of garbage that is increasing steadily in the Pacific Ocean.

Scientists believe 80% of marine plastic is discarded from land.

Plastic will never biodegrade, but it does photodegrade in the water. It becomes tiny chunks of garbage which fish eat. We then eat those fish. Many marine species carry toxin warnings today and should not be consumed by humans.

Midway Island, in the middle of the Pacific Ocean and far from humans, is home to the albatross and their breeding grounds. The albatross have no contact with humans on this remote island, but thousands of albatross die each year due to eating the plastic humans generate which floats in the ocean that surrounds Midway Island.

Worldwide, according to the United Nations Environment Programme, plastic is killing a million seabirds a year, and 100,000 marine mammals and turtles.
