Don’t Use Plastic Bags Anymore – Song

The Godwin Junior School Choir have been working with We Are What We Do, to highlight the environmental damage caused by plastic bags which gave them the impetus to write this song with their music teacher, Jenny Beeching. We Are What We Do published ‘Change the World for a Fiver’ in 2004, it contains 50 world changing actions including ‘decline plastic bags’. Last year they brought this action to life with the fantastically popular – ‘I’m not a plastic bag’ , produced with designer Anya Hindmarsh.

We Are What We Do works with a range of local schools encouraging children to consider ways in which we can use our everday actions to change the world; they believe that small actions x lots of people = big change.

Godwin Junior School Choir – Don’t Use Plastic Bags Anymore Lyric
Plastic bags are littering the streets
Clogging upthe oceans, polluting the beach
Plastic bags are blighting our land
And that’s why we think they should be banned
Don’t use plastic bags anymore
Think about what our planet is for

Plastic bags don’t disappear
They’re even inthe atmosphere
They should never have been made
They can take a 1000 years to degrade
Don’t use plastic bags anymore
Think about what our planet is for

Shopkeepers here what we say
Plastic bags don’t give them away
People take them ‘cause they’refree
But they end upkilling creatures in the sea
Don’t use plastic bags anymore
think about what our planet is for

We are all what we do and we can help the planet through
Small actions by all agessoon adds up tobig changes

Next time that you go to the shops
Ifyou’re offered a plastic bag just stop
Think of where it might end up
Inside the tummy of a poor seal pup
Don’t use plastic bags anymore
Think about what our planet is for
Buy a material bag from the till
Instead of adding to the land fill
Buy a bag that will last for yearsand for what it’s worth
It won’t cost the earth
Small actions by all agessoon adds up tobig changes
