Why is eliminating our use of single-use plastic bags important?
- Our natural resources, like Lake Erie, the Cuyahoga River, and our 3 major watersheds, are essential to our community health and economic vitality.
- Our access to clean drinking water is vital. Microplastics negatively affect our drinking water quality.
- As Climate Change affects the world more and more, our economic growth is at risk from wasted natural resources and declining environmental health.
