Presentation banning plastic bags on Bonaire?

Did you know that about 80% of all marine debris found is plastic and did you also know that plastic bags can take up to 1000 years to break down and even then the bags do not fully degrade?!!!

Sea Turtle Conservation Bonaire and Boneiru Duradero have joined forces  in 2015 to reduce the use of single-use plastic bags on Bonaire. This presentation is one of the outcomes of the partnership. The presentation was given by Cosette Larash, STCB intern and MPS student from the University of Miami, Rosensteil School of Marine and Atmospheric Science.
