Go Green: Bring Your Own Bag & WIN a Reusable Bag!
Bring Your Own Bag!
While out shopping, you can help to reduce the amount of plastic bags littering the earth and landfills by bringing your own bag!
More than 1 billion plastic bags are consumed each day, many of which end up in landfills, or as litter. Experts agree, however, that given the choice between paper or plastic, plastic uses less energy and generates less solid waste.
But, there's an even better alternative! If you don't already shop with reusable bags, now's the time to start. Bring your own bag(s) every time you leave your house, so you can use them for the grocery store or other errands. Your bag can go a long way to keeping even more plastic or paper bags out of landfills!
Tell us in the replies below:
Do you use reusable shopping bags? Would you like to start?
What are some other ways that we can reduce the amount of trash being added to our landfills?
