      It is estimated that 500 billion to 1 trillion plastic bags are consumed worldwide, That comes out to over one million per minute.
      Throwing away 100 billion plastic bags is equivalent to dumping 12 million barrels of oil
      9% of waste in landfills is plastic
      It takes 430,000 gallons of oil to manufacture 100 million bags
      More than a million birds and 100,000 marine mammals and sea turtles die every year from eating or getting entangled in plastic
