Here are some facts and we should be aware of the consequences by throwing trashes in the ocean, environment and deforestation causing global warming that could harm us here on our lovely earth!

1. More than 1,000,000 living organism of sea are killed every year, just because of plastic bags which are thrown into sea.
2. A Plastic Bag can take more than 500 years to decompose.
3. An Average family throws out plastic bag which weights more than 40kg, every year.
4. 84% of all Household trash can be recycled
5. Cigarette takes a year to 12 years for decomposition.
6. About 90% of the contents of our bins could be reused or recycled. You can reduce the use of some items, can reuse some of them like paper and cardboard and take some of them (cans, plastic, bottles etc) to recycle bin. We can make money with these ( "may pera sa basura") .

So next time you threw those trash think if it can be recycled, segregated and reuse.
