If your reusable bags stay at home or in your car instead of going to the store, you are not alone. In the United States we use about 100 billion plastic bags per year. To make the raw material for paper bags, millions of trees per year are cut down. The average reusable bag has a lifespan equal to that of more than 700 plastic bags. Bringing your own bag to the store can make a difference. Make a habit of always putting your bags back in the car after unloading your purchases, and keep your bags visible, so that they go in to the store with you.
Be the Change.
