Plastic bags have become an alarming environmental hazard, contributing significantly to current pollution. Their widespread use and improper disposal has led to an environmental crisis and needs our attention.
Annually, billions of plastic bags are produced and consumed, creating a continuous cycle of waste that takes centuries to decompose. This not only clogs landfills but also results in the release of harmful chemicals and microplastics into ecosystems, endangering wildlife and marine life. Moreover, the production of plastic bags consumes valuable fossil fuels and contributes to greenhouse gas emissions, creating a climate crisis.
Boot The Bag Bayside is a month-long educational and initiative driven campaign. Our goal is to promote reusable plastic alternatives that can combat the environmental concerns at hand and create a cleaner, healthier, and more sustainable future.
