Reusable grocery bags are in. Single use plastic bags are out. With World Oceans Day behind us we want to keep the momentum going by staying eco friendly year long. We hit you with some hard facts about plastic on our last post and what it’s doing to our environment. The sad facts are that a single plastic bag can take up to 1000 years to breakdown and shoppers are using 500 billion plastic bags per year. These bags pollute our streets and oceans. Also, only 9% of all plastic gets recycled. So even though we recycle it’s just not always enough. Eliminating plastic is the best choice we can make for our environment.
Switching over from plastic bags to reusable grocery bags doesn’t only help our environment, it also helps out your wallet. A lot of places charge 10 cents for using a plastic bag. California and Hawaii have both banned plastic bags statewide and New York is next up to follow in their footsteps. There are multiple cities in the US that also charge a deposit for both plastic and paper bags. You may be paying a fee for single use bags without even knowing about it. Reusable grocery bags are so affordable you would actually be saving money in the long run. We wanted to compile a list of the best reusable grocery bags for every type of shopper. Here are just some of our top picks.
