According to Queensland Conservation, every year, over six million tonnes of rubbish is dumped into the world’s oceans. Plastic accounts for 80% of debris found in the world’s oceans. Of this, 10% is plastic bags. The organisation is asking people to commit to kicking their ‘plastic bag habit’ by not using single use plastic bags for the entire month of March.
You’ll be able to find out more about the campaign at the market on Saturday, where Queensland Conservation will have a stall.
Should WynnumCentral take part in Plastic Bag Free March? What do you think?
