Yes, here in the US we have a bad habit.
We consume an outrageous quantity of plastic bags.
It’s time to change our habits.
Each and every individual has a responsibility
to the planet they live on, to change their plastic bag habits!
If you come home from the supermarket with
50 plastic bags that you carry back and forth
from your car to you kitchen, you have a plastic bag addiction.
In this day and age, our American addiction to plastic bags has to STOP!
Just in case those of you don’t know, the North Pacific ocean
has a Plastic Trash Island that is floating around
slowly destroying our very delicate ecosystem.
It really doesn’t take much to change your habits…..
ask anyone who has overcome and addiction.
First, get reusable bags.
Put them in your trunk or
underneath the driver’s seat or
wherever you know you’ll remember to grab them
before you go into the market.
If you always forget, try putting a yellow stickie note
on your dashboard or on your side window so you’ll see it.
If you happen to forget and end up with a bag of plastic bags,
recycle them as best you can.
Use them for your smaller trash baskets instead
of buying plastic bags. (what an oxymoron!!)
You can also drop of your plastic bags
at your neighborhood supermarket.
They always have a recycle drop off barrel
where you can leave your plastic bags.
I know it’s hard to completely let go…..
All I have to say is do the best you can to stop using plastic bags.
Change your habits today!
Your planet needs you to make different choices.
