Guess What Was Found at the Bottom of The World’s Deepest Ocean?
Widespread Impact of Litter
In 1998 scientists manning a robotic submersible found something very unexpected at almost 36,000 feet down in the Mariana Trench: a disposable plastic bag. What made this find so alarming is the remoteness of the location. Scientists who study the deepest parts of the world’s oceans have made similar finds. From Japan to the Atlantic and the Indian oceans, researchers all over the world have found plastic litter deep in the ocean.
Reach of Litter
The plastic litter problem is widespread when trash is being found at the deepest, depths of the ocean. We have examined the question of how much plastic trash is in our oceans, and this is a serious problem. Plastic trash can damage ecosystems and interfere with our food chain and water supply. The more plastic that ends up in oceans the larger and more substantial the negative impacts grow.
Types of Trash
Most of the litter found deep in the ocean is plastic, more commonly it is single-use plastic. The lightweight and durable construction that makes single-use plastic items, such as grocery bags and water bottles useful turns out to become a major problem when the items are improperly disposed. All types of litter have potentially harmful ramifications, but plastic litter is particularly dangerous because it never completely breaks down.
How Business Can Help
Your business can help remedy the plastic litter problem by taking your marketing reusable with eco-friendly bags. Reusable bags do away with the use and need of single-use bags, and less single-use bags handed out in stores means less litter.
Understanding What Makes Eco-Friendly Bags
Eco-friendly bags are a marketing tool that will align with your brand’s green or environmental goals. Several factors contribute to the eco-friendliness of our reusable bags. The reusable design is eco, given that it does away with the need and use of single-use bags.
The materials we use are also eco-friendly. Some of our reusable bags are made from recycled content, which re-purposes existing materials and reduces plastic waste. We also offer eco-friendly bags made from sustainable plant-based materials, like jute, cotton and bamboo.
Opting to promote your brand with eco-friendly bags can significantly help the environment and cut down on the number of single-use plastic bags that end up in our oceans, but they can do so much more. Reusable bags make excellent promotional products that increase awareness around your brand.
The durable construction allows these bags to last for many years. In that time, customized eco-friendly bags can deliver a lot of impressions and make sure your brand is noticed and remembered.
