So I'm making another small change. I always keep a stash of reusable bags in my car to avoid these situations. But now I'm going to start keeping a reusable grocery bag in my purse too.
If you're not convinced that your occasional plastic bag makes that big of a difference, take a look at some of my favorite infographics about plastic bags.
|This is a great visual, but take this inforgraphic with a grain of salt. |
It was produced by a manufacturer of promotional reusable bags.
Before you go out and buy a reusable bag, check your junk drawer and ask your friends. They seem to be everywhere these days and, unfortunately, are being over-manufactured by companies who want to cash in on the growing trend. My mom is always asking me if I want the bag she was given for free and some store or other. You should have no problem getting your hands on at least one without spending a cent!
Here's an interesting range of information including arguments both for and against the banning of plastic bags, and the rising popularity of reusable bags.
