Plastic Bag Sightings in Chicago
How many plastic bags does one person living in Chicago encounter per day? The data was collected by closely observing my surroundings while doing regular activities such as sitting at a café and walking. Each plastic bag seen was plotted in a 24-hour clock every hour. Reusable bag sightings were also noted for comparison. A total of 511 plastic bags were seen in one day, with spikes during lunch and after-work hours.
