Fiji uses around 50 to 60 million plastics bags in a year.
Plastic Bags are one of the modern conveniences that we seem to be unable to live without.
However, there have also been negative environmental and public health impacts associated with the disposal of plastic bags.
They are responsible for causing pollution, killing wildlife and using up the precious resources on earth because plastic bags consume large quantities of raw materials for its production.
Smoldering plastics can release toxic fumes into the environment, in turn taking the air pollution to much higher levels.
