The numbers are mind-boggling. No I’m not talking about Black Friday or Cyber Monday, I’m talking about the amount of plastic bags that are used everyday around the world. Billions with a”B” and it would seem the world has gone crazy without the slightest concern for our environment and what the effect all those bags have. For the ones that actually make it to the garbage dumps, it is estimated that they don’t break down for a thousand years or more. Imagine a millennium from now when some archeologist is digging around and finds all those bags just breaking down and then they realize that even after all that time they are still toxic.
Is there something you and I can do? Yes, first you can use reusable grocery bags. You see them being used everyday by people who care about the environment. Yes the numbers are staggering, but you can make a difference. Talk to your friends and family, teach your children at an early age how important it is not to use them.
