It’s official now, no more plastic bags for my shopping. I went from plastic bags to boxes and now I’m set with my organic cotton, reusable bags. You might think whatever, this shit doesn’t affect me but the truth is it does. The plastic pollution doesn't just hurt marine species, it affects us all. When the animals (you’re eating) eat these plastic pieces, dioxin (an endocrine disrupter) and many other toxins are absorbed into their body and passed up the food chain directly into your body. If you think you have thrown bags away, remember; there is no away. Every bag you have ever thrown away is stored in landfill somewhere. Dioxin and other toxins leach out of landfills, further contaminating waterways and oceans. This is not something that you or your family want to be consuming. @take3forthesea ⠀
If your health isn’t a good enough reason, thousands of marine animals choke and die from ingesting this plastic. You might like a good choking sometimes, but they don’t.
Help stop the accumulation of plastic in our oceans by using reusable bags and reducing plastic in your other consumer choices as well. Every bag counts and you can help. On another note — i’m seriously impressed with my new @seedandsproutco bags. Believe it or not, there’s 7 massive celeries in that bag on the right. Big thumbs up to never again having to listen to fruit and veg boxes sliding around like crazy in my car boot after market day. Win 🙏🏼🌍🌱
