Reusable Bags Reduce Plastic Waste - ChicoBag
Video marketing with dramatic moments is the new wave of advertising and promotion for green generations
The average American uses between 300 and 700 plastic bags per year.
If everyone in the United States tied their annual consumption of plastic bags together in a giant chain, the chain would reach around the Earth not once, but 760 times!
According to the American Forest and Paper Association, in 1999 the U.S. alone used 10 billion paper grocery bags, requiring 14 million trees to be cut down.
Plastic bags don’t biodegrade, they photo-degrade—breaking down into small toxic bits contaminating soil and waterways and entering the food-chain when mistaken for zooplankton or jellyfish.

And it got my attention...so now you're seeing. it. See how easy it is for video to become viral?
