On Earth Day, Bishop Brady Senior Warren Bartlett dressed in 500 plastic bags to bring awareness to the importance of reducing the usage of plastic. It is estimated that more than 500 billion plastic bags are used world-wide each year. According to EcoWatch.com's article, 22 Facts About Plastic Pollution, it takes 500 to 1000 years for plastic to degrade. Plastic is also a large contributor to the Great Pacific Garbage Patch; twice the size of Texas, it is the largest floating ocean garbage site in the world.
