Awhile back, I blogged about my "green" bags
for grocery shopping. Now, I'm even more compelled to use them! Tonight, in an NBC Nightly News
report, I learned that China is outlawing the use of ultra-thin plastic bags. Why? Get a load of this:
- the number of plastic bags China uses everyday!
- the number of years ONE plastic bag takes to degrade!
- the number of crude oil barrels required EVERY year to make plastic bags for China!
These days, I spend half my life at plastic-bag places (Walmart, Publix, CVS, ToysrUs)! Hearing these stats really motivates me to find other ways to tote my stuff!
