Research released by Environment Washington supports plastic bags as a contributor to the detriment of marine eco systems. The report says, “ In April 2010 a dead grey whale washed up on the beach in West Seattle. It had 20 plastic bags in its stomach.”
Sad but not shocking after reading that less than 6% of the nations plastic bags are recycled, leaving the rest of these super inconvenient bags chillin in landfills and intoxicating the marine food web. Find link to the full report here.
