AML to Distribute 10k Reusable Shopping Bags On Earth Day – BahamasPosted on April 21, 2016 by DrRossH in Plastic Waste News
At AML Foods, we understand that the retail business is one of the largest contributors to plastic use in the Bahamas. Some years back, we moved to use only biodegradable plastic bags and now we want to move further to reduce the number of bags we use in our business,” he said. “We are pleased to announce this green initiative to donate 10,000 reusable bags on Earth Day this Friday.
On a global scale, more than one million sea birds and 100,000 sea animals die each year due to the overwhelming amount of plastic in the oceans around the world. In addition to putting marine life at risk, plastic waste also affects soil fertility and releases poisonous chemicals in the air when burned.
The bags being given out are not plastic either. Nice one AML Foods.
