sad fact: over 1 million plastic bags are consumed per minute globally.
gut-wrenching fact: marine wildlife mistake plastic bags for food and die.
frustrating fact: supermarkets and politicians will take years to sort it out.
happy fact: making morsbags will help, with immediate effect.
Fancy becoming a groundbreaking podmaster? All you need is to find some friends, a venue, a sewing machine, some matieral (check charity shops if you don't have any at home) and some wine and/or chocolate cake and you're ready for a fulfilling afternoon/evening of chatter and productivity.
Aim to do this (perhaps at different venues, with different friends, and different cake) once a fortnight or so and email us to let us know what you've acheived.
Morsbag tallies are posted (on the Flash site), and it will be interesting to see geographically where you are on the podmap. The more pods the merrier - the more bags made, the less wildlife suffers.
The UK alone consumers over 10 billion plastic bags per year. Ever single morsbag made will really help. If everyone in the UK made one bag, that would be at least 1.5 billion less plastic bags per year.
