Project GreenBag Becomes A Member Of The ‘Plastic Pollution Coalition’


Project GreenBag is now a proud member of the Plastic Pollution Coalition.
Single-use plastics and disposable plastics are some of the greatest sources of plastic pollution. Designed to be discarded, these objects offer a small convenience but remain forever. Project GreenBag is happy to announce we have becomes a member of the Plastic Pollution Coalition and pledge to help reduce plastic pollution worldwide.
Manuel Martinez the founder of Project GreenBag says:
"Project GreenBag becoming a member of the Plastic Pollution Coalition is a huge step in the right direction for the environment. There are over 60,000 plastic bags being used this second. In some parts of the ocean there are six pounds of plastic for every pound of plankton. They can take from 400 to 1,000 years to decompose but their chemicals residues remain for years after that.
Examine the problem and it's obvious that something needs to be done about now. I along with Project GreenBag believes in a 100% ban on single use plastic bags. It's very easy to kick the habit, we just have to set our mind to it. It's not as simple as buying a low-end reusable bag, those are made from oil and imported thousands of miles which also leave a large footprint. The true path to sustainability is local and organic bags."
