4ocean raising awareness of reusable shopping bags Posted on 1 Oct 15:25
As well as helping fund clean-ups of our oceans and the coastlines, through sales of their 4Ocean Bracelet, 4Ocean also help raise awareness of issues that are affecting the natural balance of the marine world. One of those is the need for consumers to use reusable shopping bags rather than single-use plastic.
A plastic bag has an average working life of 15 minutes and approximately 500 billion bags are used every year. According to waste management, only 1% of plastic bags are returned for recycling so 99% of plastic bags end up in a landfill or worse, in the ocean, affecting sea life, such as sea turtles who often confuse the bags for food. Choose reusable shopping bags and help save the marine ecosystems.
