The Long, Long Life of a Plastic Bag (PPB #15)
According to Becky Stiepe’s guest post at Glue & Glitter, each of us uses about 330 plastic shopping bags a year. All together, that means we go through 90 billion of ’em… and, as the video she found shows, these things live on long after they’ve served their purpose.
Are you religious about taking the reusable bags to the store? Remember most of the time? Or, just don’t do it? I’m pretty good, but still forget them more than I’d like. Any suggestions for making sure you’ve got reusable bags on hand when you need them?
