25 minutes is the time a plastic bag is used before it ends up in Nature. Symbol of our throw-away society, single-use plastic bag is a scourge for the environment and the oceans. It have dramatic consequences on the environment, the fauna and flora.
Mankind is responsible for the pollution, but it is also the solution. The “Ban the bag” campaign has been therefore designed to help citizens, shopkeepers and local authorities to take action to phase-out single-use plastic bags. With the help of our local volunteers’ chapters and of citizens willing to take action, 35 cities have already engaged in our campaign as well as thousands of shopkeepers over Europe.
