Go Green for your next trade show event and Brand a bag that is not plastic, so that your branding does not end up a landfill. Here is some pointers about plastic bags.
* A plastic shopping bag can take anywhere from 15 to 1000 years to decompose. In a compressed landfill, deprived of atmosphere to help them biodegrade, paper bags don’t fare much better.
* Plastic bags don’t biodegrade, but are at risk for photo degradation, light exposure dissolving them into toxic polymer particles. Most often, when this happens, it happens in the ocean.
*The cost to recycle plastic bags so outweighs their value that most recycling facilities will not take them, leading more and more to just be thrown out with the rest of the trash.
* According to the Wall Street Journal, only 1% of plastic bags are recycled world-wide; the rest are left to live on indefinitely in landfills.
* Over a lifetime, use of reusable bags by just one person would save over 22,000 plastic bags. Isn’t that even better incentive?
