(KMOV.com) – Andy Keller and his alter ego Bag Monster stopped in St. Louis on Monday.
His costume consists of 500 plastic bags, which Keller says is the average number of plastic bags that a person uses in one year.
Keller was in Creve Coeur Park on Monday to set up a 45,000 bag display to represent how many plastic bags a typical person uses in a lifetime.
Keller is on a 15 city tour, stopping in states that are considering implementing plastic bag ban legislation.
