Filter Bags

Volunteers gather at the edges of some of the treasures of the country's oldest national trash fish out of water and the beach. Plastic bags, dog droppings and metal cans are just some of the more than twenty items that are recorded by the Blue Ocean Society of Portsmouth, New Hampshire. Armed with gloves and plastic bags, Cooper and started to help and recover the waste that is discarded through ignorance or deliberately overlooked.

Dr. Richard Bailey, executive director a group of volunteers working in California, is more concerned about the plastic bags that get waterlogged and sink to the bottom. "We have a lot of animals living on the bottom: shrimp, shellfish, sponges," he says. "It's like you're eating at your table and someone comes and throws a plastic tarp over your table and you. "

My son, Cooper and I fish more than 10 plastic bags out of the bay, 8 piles of dog droppings along the beach with cigarette butts, candy wrappers and a soccer ball. As we worked, many passersby gave us thanks to our efforts, Cooper smiled and thanked the back. There are billions more in coming and as a result, our oceans are in trouble
The plastic bag is a symbol of convenience, the most abundant consumer item on Earth, numbering in the billions dollars. Since oil and natural gas environmental impacts of the manufacturing process and numerous studies show that some bags contain lead, demonstrated to damage the brain, kidneys and reproductive system, cause birth defects, slow growth and cause hearing problems

Americans throw 100 billion plastic bags each year, losing about 12 million barrels of oil. Only 1 percent of plastic bags are recycled worldwide – about 2 percent in the U.S. – And the rest will persist for centuries. "They're so aerodynamic that even when they are well prepared to can still blow and become trash, "says Mark Murray, executive director of Californians against waste.

Go to any parade, and you view multiple washings in the nearby waterway. Plastic bags have been found in the stomachs of albatrosses in remote areas. Floating bags seem jellyfish to hungry marine mammals. Research suggests that more than one million birds and 100,000 marine mammals and sea turtles die each year from plastic meetings. There are 46,000 pieces of plastic floating on every square mile of ocean. In the North Pacific Gyre, a huge vortex of currents ocean, there is now a swirling mass of plastic that is estimated to double the size of Texas.

Ireland 22, has a tax of one penny in the stock plastics has reduced the use of more than 90 percent. In Bangladesh, where plastic bags choked drainage causing floods, bags are prohibited. San Francisco and Oakland outlawed the use of plastic bags and paper bags can only be made at least 40 percent of content recycling. Meanwhile, other communities across the country, including Santa Monica, California, New Haven, Connecticut, Annapolis, Md., and Portland, Oregon, are considering the drastic legislative action against the bags.

The problem with plastic bags is that they last forever. The plastic are not biodegradable.

That the dog is not only problem, the waste does not last forever, but still causes major problems such as Cooper and learned during cleaning from the beach. Reusable food bags are a solution to the plastic invasion. Invest in some pockets of commercial quality, whales and dolphins thanks.
