Recently the Daufuskie Island Conservancy purchased the movie “Bag it” and learned the following facts:
*The top three plastic containers that Americans use and throw away the most are bags, bottles and cups.
*Bottled water has surpassed sales of milk and beer and in three years will surpass the sale of soda.
*Plastics are made with fossil fuels and transported by fossil fuels.
*17 million barrels of oil are consumed for plastic bottle production each year. The production generates 2.5 million tons of carbon dioxide.
*Numerous European countries have either banned plastic bottles or reuse them and issue a deposit.
