Pork Ewe is going plastic bag free!
Plastic bags have been around for 30 years now. It is estimated world wide that 1 trillion bags are used and discarded every year.
Australians use 3.92 billion plastic bags a year, that's over 10 million new bags being used DAILY.
An estimated 3.76 billion bags or 20,700 tonnes of plastic are disposed of in landfill sites throughout Australia every year.
Australians dump 7,150 recyclable plastic bags into landfills every minute or 429,000 bags every hour.
It is estimated that around 50 million bags enter the Australian litter stream every year.
