FIVE Plastic Bags Facts:
  1.  Approximately 90% of trash floating on the ocean's surface is plastic. 
  2. 93% of Americans age 6+ will test positive for traces of BPA, a harsh chemical found in most plastics. 
  3. Plastic Bags do not biodegrade; they photodegrade, meaning they break down into smaller and smaller toxic pieces that contaminate soil and waterways. 
  4. One million sea birds and 100,000 marine mammals are killed annually from plastic in our oceans. 
  5. The Great Pacific Garbage Patch is the largest ocean garbage site in the world. The floating mass of plastic is two times the size of Texas. Plastic there outnumbers sea life six to one.
