PLASTIC BAGS & THE PLANET The average family brings home 1,000 bags every year. Most of those bags end up in land fills. That really adds up - 100 billion plastic bags are sent to landfill in the US each year.
In landfills, it can take up to 1000 years for a bag to decompose. Plastics don't biodegrade, they photo-degrade, breaking down into tiny toxic pieces that contaminate soil and water or harm wildlife.
Every time you use your Baggu bag instead of plastic or paper you are doing something Good.Using one Baggu for one year replaces 300 to 700 disposable bags.
I blogged about these before, but I just ordered my own! I can't wait for them to get here so I can use them!!
Look how great they fold up!
