Information about single use plastic bags
It is estimated that more than twenty millions bags are used in East Brunswick every year.
Worldwide, a trillion single-use plastic bags are used every year. The plastic the bags are made of does not readily degrade and remain in the environment for up to a thousand years.
Discarded plastic bags threaten wildlife everywhere, suffocate our wetlands, and pollute our oceans.
The good news is plastic bag pollution is preventable, and you can be part of the solution. If each of us use reusable bags when shopping we will eliminate the accumulation of plastic bags in our environment.
