Did you know that plastic bags were supposed to be banned in California on the first of this month? It didn’t happen because plastic bag companies threw a fit and paid a lot of money to delay the bill.
The story of stuff is doing a #mybag campaign to celebrate reusable bags, help the law pass, and create awareness of the dangers of plastic bags.
Plastic pollution is a problem. 10 metric tons of plastic is carried into the ocean a day. One million plastic bags are used every minute. A million sea birds and 100,000 marine animals are killed annually due to plastic pollution.
You can make a huge difference by just remembering to bring your reusable bags to the store! It’s so easy. Take a picture and use #mybag to help end plastic pollution.
I was nominated by Danielle from No Need For Mars to show off my bag.
You’ve already seen my market bag. But, this is one of my favorites. It’s a great sturdy tote for jars or for my reusable produce and bread bags in my other hand. Plus, it’s super pretty and a gift from my mom.
Now it’s my turn to nominate some fellow zero waste bloggers.
There are zero waste bloggers all over the world! I invite you to check them out. Also, please post to social media with #mybag and tag your friends! Let’s bring an end to plastic bags.
