Plastic bags only serve their purpose for an average of 30 minutes before they are thrown away. This leads to huge amounts of plastic waste ending up in nature every year. Global studies tell us plastic waste causes death over 100,000 marine animals and 1 million marine birds every year.
To raise awareness about the devastating impact of plastic pollution, Yas Mall is partnering with the Emirates Wildlife Society, World Wildlife Fund and the Environment Agency – Abu Dhabi, for its ‘Rethink Plastic’ campaign. From 12 – 15 Sept, Yas Mall visitors can exchange plastic bags for eco-friendly shopping bags and make a visible commitment to reduce plastic waste by making a pledge.
‘Rethink Plastic’ aims to increase awareness of the harmful effects of plastic pollution, the consequences of throwing away plastic bags and how households can change the growing problem of unnecessary waste.
