History of Plastic Bag Free Day
The first Plastic Bag Free Day was held on September 15, 2007. The event was started by two women in Australia, Rebecca Prince-Ruiz and Stephenie Rodriquez. They were concerned about the environmental impact of plastic bags and decided to do something about it.
The goal of Plastic Bag Free Day is to reduce the use of plastic bags. It is estimated that we use trillions of plastic bags every year. Most of these bags end up in landfills or in the ocean. They can take centuries to decompose. By reducing our use of plastic bags, we can help to protect the environment.
