Plastic Bag Bans and Your Brand Can Help Save The Penguins
Plastic Litter Having Harmful Impact on Penguins
Plastic pollution is bad news, and conversationalist Pablo Borboroglu can attest firsthand to the deadly damage plastic litter can wreak on the environment and the animals who call it home. As the founder of the Global Penguin Society, Borboroglu has spent decades working across the southern hemisphere and during this time he has discovered the necessity of plastic bag bans.
Dangers of Plastic Litter
Plastic litter is not biodegradable, which means it will not safely break down. When single-use plastic water bottles or grocery bags are discarded they will stick around. Wind and water can carry items away, so this unsightly and harmful trash can do damage all over the world. Trash poses a serious risk to animals and their habitats. Borboroglu has witnessed penguins tangled in disposable plastic bags and water bottles. The animals are unable to free themselves and the plastic litter can prevent them from being able to fend for and protect themselves.
Hurting Vulnerable Species
In instances of species with low numbers this additional threat can present an even greater danger. Borboroglu created a wildlife reserve for penguins after discovering a colony that was on the verge of disappearing. In 10 years the reserve has fostered the growth of the colony from six pairs to 1,750 pairs of penguins. Plastic litter is now a major threat to these penguins.
Plastic Bag Bans Provide a Solution
The easiest and most effective solution to the plastic litter problem is to eliminate single-use items that are likely to end up as litter. Without disposable plastic items, the harmful impacts of litter are eliminated. Plastic bag bans do just that and are proven to minimize discarded trash. With so many reusable options available, it is easy to find eco-friendly durable alternatives that can fill in for single-use items.
