Consequences of overusing plastic bags

VTV.vn - Each year Vietnam discharges about half a million tons of plastic waste into the sea.

Currently, we rank 4th in the world in terms of the amount of plastic waste discharged to the marine environment, after China, Indonesia, and the Philippines. In reality, most people are aware of the harm plastic bags can cause, but still use them due to their low cost and convenience.

The most dangerous thing about plastic bags is its inability to biodegrade, which means they can pollute the environment for hundreds of years.
