California is the only state that has banned the use of plastic bags while nine other states have banned plastic bag bans. Think about all the plastic pollution coming from plastic containers, plastic straws, plastic utensils like forks, spoons, and knives, and other plastic wraps and bags that people use just one time before they end up in the trash, on our streets, or in the ocean. There are several legitimate economical and ecological reasons to cut down on excessive plastic use, and NowThis’ Lucy Biggers is here to tell you more.

Watch as Lucy Biggers takes up the challenge to go one month without single-use plastic in an effort to combat plastic pollution and climate change. Along the way, Lucy will also share a few tips on how you can fight plastic pollution too, and just maybe (hopefully) inspire you to take the 30-day plastic free challenge too.
