NEITHER! Pledge to bring reusable bags to the grocery store (or any store). Make it a habit!
Check out these tidbits:
100 billion: The number of plastic shopping bags used annually in the US
1000: The number of plastic bags a high quality reusable bag has the potential to eliminate in its lifetime!
14 million trees are used to make paper bags in one year!
12 million barrels of oil is used to make plastic bags in one year!
Plastic bag waste can last up to 1000 years!
Plastic bags cause over 100,000 sea turtle and other marine animal deaths every year when animals mistake them for food.
Let's make a difference and keep the world clean & green!
