It’s International Plastic Bag Free Day!
This week Hawaii became the first state to fully ban plastic bags at grocery stores!
Reusable bags drastically decrease the amount of plastic and paper waste from shopping bags. Think your shopping trip won’t make a difference? Think again!
Over 1 trillion plastic bags end up in landfills or in the ocean every year. Just one person can save over 22,000 plastic bags throughout their lifetime by switching to reusable ones!
More states will follow Hawaii so get ahead of the curve and start bringing your reusable bags with you now! Leave them in your car or by your front door to remember to use them every time you shop.
Buzz these pins when you make the effort to reduce your waste!
