Plastic or reusable?
Our future, our choice

Our Campaign

Trash Academy (a project of Mural Arts Philadelphia), in collaboration with Clean Water Action and the city of Philadelphia’s Zero Waste and Litter cabinet, has initiated an exciting new campaign to reduce the amount of plastic bags in our streets and in our waste stream.

Our goal is to see all of Philadelphia’s diverse communities take action to promote reusable bags.

Americans use 100 billion plastic bags each year. Each bag is used for an average of 12 minutes, yet their effects persist for much longer. One way to limit this damage to both our health and to the environment is to choose reusable bags over plastic.
