  • The Plastic Bag Problem

    Do you fully understand the impact of plastic bags on our environment? Many consumers don’t realize how big of an issue this is becoming. Several countries around the world have put an end to the “free plastic bag” used in stores, drastically reducing the number of bags consumed nationwide. They do this by making consumers pay extra to use plastic bags, which many do not want to do. This forces people to bring their own reusable bags when making purchases. This practice is catching in both developed and developing countries such as Europe, South Africa, and Taiwan. This strategy has done wonders for local environments around the world and is helping them to move toward a greener future. When will the U.S. adopt a more sustainable approach to the plastic bag problem?

    Plastic bags have an impact on wildlife, the Earth, and the management of garbage in landfills. In today’s world it is not uncommon to see plastic bags dancing along the highway or scattered along beautiful scenery. Many do not think twice about it. Additionally, many wild animals consume remnants of plastic bags resulting in fatality. Marine wildlife is among the most affected. The United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP) estimates that there is about 46,000 pieces of plastic litter scattered across every square mile of the ocean.

    The cost of producing and using alternative products such as paper or reusable bags has further complicated this issue. Convenience is the American lifestyle and it is often easier to throw materials away than it is to take them to a recycling center. However, reducing the use of plastic bags and other plastics is a great first step toward achieving a greener lifestyle because it is much easier than other measures such as driving less. Researchers estimate about 100 billion plastic bags are used in the U.S. each year. Many do not consciously notice the effects of plastic bags and other plastics on the environment, but it is a problem that that the public should be paying attention to.

    Shocking Statistics:

    -only about 1-2% of plastic bags are recycled

    -thousands of marine animals and about one million birds die each year due to the consumption of plastic

    -animals mistake plastic bag remnants as food and ingest them

    -plastic bags are made with petroleum which causes pollution during their production

    -12 million barrels of oil are used to create the nearly 100 billion plastic bags used in the U.S. alone each year

    -it is estimates retailers spend about $4 billion a year on plastic bags

    -the average U.S. family uses about 1,460 plastic bags annually

  • "You must be the change you wish to see in the world." Please recycle!

    In today’s faced past world it is not often we stop and take a moment to think about how our actions affect the environment. Even less often we think of the problems that are taking places in distant places of the world. However, every aspect of the environment is interrelated, and ignoring one issue can cause a domino effect.

    With chaotic schedules and bills to pay our thoughts often gravitate toward the short term. For some people it may be easier to throw glass, plastic, and other recyclables away. Did you know all of these items take hundreds of years to decompose and have a lasting effect on the environment?

    The following video may be graphic to some, but it is the sad truth about what is going on in our world. If we were all to take a more serious approach to recycling we could save so many animals and also help save our environment. We encourage you to investigate sustainable alternatives to your every day products. Polly Products offers you several great alternatives to promote a green community!
