Watch the video, then take action: Say NO more plastic bag pollution!

Thanks for the video. I loved it. More people need to see this and everyone needs to stop using plastic and if you do... then recycle it.

Such a delightful & funny video. By funny I mean it was like a cartoon, although it carried a serious message. Ban plastic bags worldwide!!

One is too many, but is there a similar garbage patch of plastic bags in the Atlantic Ocean?
