Plastic bags and wrappers are killing fish and birds by blocking their gills and guts.

4. Some plastics are more environmentally friendly, some will breakdown after time, and others will degrade when exposed to ultraviolet light.


5. The package would breakdown before the customers are able to get them; the packets will breakdown on the stand after in is unpacked.
