Obviously, there are GREAT reasons to avoid plastic bags. For example, you may already know how they cause wildlife-destroying pollution, needless oil consumption, and endocrine-disrupting chemicals. They also AREN’T necessary. It’s crazy to think how much society depends on them today: after all, plastic produce bags only came into being in the 1960s; plastic grocery bags, a decade later.

So here are three very simple reasons to use reusable bags, and specifically organic ones!

  1. Plastic bags take anywhere from 15 to 1000 years to decompose.
  2. Only 1 percent of plastic bags are recycled in the United States. The rest end up in landfills, the ocean, or some other place in the environment. There’s actually a giant garbage heap made mostly of plastic floating in the ocean that’s twice the size of the United States.
  3. Organic cotton is grown without pesticides and is typically certified using global standards while traditional Cotton production involves a raw, natural fiber, but requires more chemicals than any other crop.

Have you started using reusable bags yet? Maybe now is a good time to start. Click here for organic bags under $3….who said organic living was expensive? Here’s my favorite one, it’s also less than $3.  It’s a no-brainer!
