Every now and again we get contacted by our friend Jessica who creates some pretty funky cool infographics. Jessica has created a new awesome graphic on the effects of pollution caused by plastic bags alone! In Toronto I was very excited when they introduced a plastic bag ban (well, they introduced a fee for plastic bags). It was very inspiring to see our City endorse an easy green option, where people used cloth or recycled bags for groceries. And now it looks like the measure is being rescinded. At Toronto Scuba Centre we firmly believe in making greater strides in eco-friendly behaviour. It seriously saddens us when we see trash on dives or in a tropical oasis. A simple step like using a cloth bag is something easily achievable and every little step helps.
