National Reusable Bag Day is a great opportunity to BYOB (Bring Your Own Bag) and help reduce disposable bag usage nationwide. The event is being sponsored by Earthshare and Earthwise Bag Company, Inc.
The Plastic Bag Issue
If you grocery shop once a week, in five years you’ll have kept about 250 to 1,000 grocery bags out of our landfills.
100 billion disposable plastic bags are used each year in the U.S., 99% of which are not recycled – and that each bag could take up to a thousand years to fully break down naturally in landfills.
Get Involved with Reusable Bag Day
Starting on April 21 and from then on every other day, when you are given the choice of "Paper or Plastic?" say "NEITHER!" Remember to BYOB - bring or purchase your own reusable bag instead.
Use Reusable Bag Day as the occasion to start bringing reusable bags anytime you shop.
You can make Reusable Bag Day happen every day.
