What You Can Do To Keep Our Planet Healthy

Every plastic bag you've ever tossed is still around somewhere. They never decompose. I think this information is what made me finally commit to not using plastic bags anymore. Every year about 4 billion plastic bags end up as litter polluting our planet. Every year more than a million birds die from eating plastic bags.
Kick the plastic bag habit! Bring your own tote bags to the grocery store as well as to other stores when you shop. Just about every place sells them. There are also produce bags available now that are not plastic. ecobags.com Buy several totes and keep them in your car so you don't forget them when you go shopping.
"Bringing your own bag may seem like a small step, however the
more you do it, the more it becomes the right thing to do."
Kick the plastic bag habit. You can do it!

I was just thinking the other day I needed to try harder to remember to take my reusealbe bags with me to the store. =)

I would love to do a guest post. =)

I love my eco friendly bags - they are so much stronger than plastic!

I really like the black one's that read "This is a green bag." Smile

In Norway we use a new plactic bag that disappears rapidly when the sun shines on the bags. We use thermo bags in my household. We can use them maybe 100 times.
