Zoo Miami's Gift Shop Has Gone Plastic Bag Free, and So Can You!

We have gone completely bag free for wildlife conservation. Guests shopping in our gift shop may purchase reusable bags or use a tote they’ve brought from home.

Not-So-Fun Facts About Plastic Pollution:

  • The average American will throw away approximately 185 pounds of plastic in a year.
  • Plastic bags are petroleum-based and do not biodegrade.
  • More than 100,000 marine animals die each year from eating plastic pollution in our oceans.
  • Sea turtles and other ocean creatures mistake plastics and other garbage as food (such as jellyfish) and ingest it. This causes blockages within their digestive system.
