JUST SAY “NO!” TO BAGS

December 19, 2007

If you live in SoCal, on December 20th, bring your own bag…

LA residents use 6 BILLION plastic grocery bags each year and only recycle 5% -the remainder ends up in the ocean and landfills. It costs us 14 cents to collect and dispose of each plastic bag.

Thanks to Marilee!

This is actually something that both Ryan and I do on a regular basis. If I pick up a few small things at the store, I’ll just stick them in my purse (after paying of course), instead of using a bag. If it’s one large thing, I’ll just carry it, instead of get an awkward bag. We bring reusable vinyl bags to the grocery store and when we forget those, we make sure they stuff as much into each bag as possible and we ask them not to double bag. Ideas…
