Did you know that every plastic bag buried in landfill takes 500 years to decay? And we use over 150 million plastic bags each week!
In Devon we throw away over 300,000 tonnes of rubbish every year. That's enough to cover a football pitch with rubbish more than 400 metres high. We've got to face up to the fact that we can't just keep burying our rubbish and hoping it will go away. It won't.
