Perils of plastic bags:
- Only one in seven plastic bags get recycled
- Plastic bags on an average are used solely for 12 minutes, but their danger is enormous
- It takes 500 + years for a plastic bag to degrade in the landfill
- 100,000 marine animals are killed by plastic bags annually
- Hence the initiative of actor Surya and his Agaram foundations of conducting plastic awareness is commendable.
