Description: 

Around 1 million of sea animals die every year because of plastic bags that end up in your environmentinappropriately.

What you just did would save the life of this sea turtle. But in order to help to save millions of sea animalsevery year, it takes far more. Stop using plastic bag is a good start.

Other damage that plastic bags bring to the environment:
• they are not biodegradable - they remain in the environment for hundreds of years;
• they cause clogging of drains, which in the rainy season, lead to floods;
• when incinerated, they release toxins dangerous to health.

The Central Business hopes that this will be the last plastic bag you have contact wtih. In the marketplace, there are better options as ecobags, biodegradable plastic bags, recycled paper bags, among others.
Plastic Bags. Eliminate this harm from your everyday life and from the planet. Life welcomes.

They printed that message on a plastic bag?... Forgive me if I'm mistaken, but wouldn't it have been better to provide a miniature cloth bag/recycled paper bag/whatever else they listed -- any alternative to plastic -- and then just direct the copy a bit differently to acknowledge said bag?

Cool idea. Half-right execution.
