According to Heal the Bay, an advocacy group from Southern California, 19 billion plastic bags are used across California every year, leading to 123,000 tons of waste and costing taxpayers $25 million a year in cleanup efforts.
Narrated by Academy Award-winning actor Jeremy Irons, the short video details the journey of a single-use plastic bag. The video will make you chuckle, but more importantly turn your attention to the hazards and costs of plastic bags on the environment.
