I am constantly amazed that people are forgetting to bring reusable shopping bags to the stores. Paper or Plastic: NEITHER should be a choice! I feel guilty when I have to put a leaky chicken into a plastic bag! But look at the people going out of even WHOLE FOODS with paper bags! It’s not like using paper is such a great alternative! After all, trees are being cut down to make those bags! And think of the energy it takes to produce them, print on them and ship them! They are heavier than plastic, and therefore it takes more fuel to ship them!
Everyday SHOULD be Earth Day. I mean, what is the BIG deal about bringing your own reusable shopping bags to the store instead of getting those lousy plastic bags? Just look around at the garbage on the side of the roads. It’s mostly plastic bags (and other awful things like cigarette butts and big gulp drinks filled with sugar). Plastic bags even get stuck in the trees!
Look, if you forget to bring your bags, you can have a built in reminder system! Have you child decorate “THEIR” bags with a message about protecting the planet, and then THEY will remind you to bring the bags! This is a terrific gift for the child in your life for Earth Day, or any other day! Or maybe YOU want to release your inner artist? Then we have the perfect solution for you! Decorate our terrific Organic Cotton, Fair Trade bags with non-toxic fabric paint pens. Put you message on the bag! It’s called the Kid’s Kit To Save The Planet From Plastic Bags. It comes with an educational booklet, perfect for Earth Day! Maybe you’ll learn something too!
Remember, you can’t throw plastic “away”. It NEVER biodegrades; only photodegrades into smaller and smaller pieces. And those nasty pieces are eaten by smaller and smaller animals, and making it’s way UP the food chain – eventually into YOUR body! And think of those beautiful and precious trees that you are having destroyed because you “forgot” your bag!
You can’t throw plastic away! And where is “away” anyway? Get Reusable Organic Biodegradable Bags- and USE them!
