Ok let’s be honest. How many of you have ditched the plastic? If you’re making some kind of effort then pat yourself on the back because YOU are taking steps to save our precious Planet. More and more we are seeing plastic in our oceans not to mention the affects on pollution.
Did You Know
Human are using and disposing of BILLIONS of plastic bags per year. PER YEAR! Thousands of marine life are dying as well as land animals because they cannot digest the plastic. If you’re not horrified by this then it’s time to see a shrink!
I’m not just smiling for the camera here. I’m seriously giddy about using my produce bags. Every time I actually remember to bring them to the grocery store I feel great about what I am doing for my family and for the planet. Honestly I see more and more people using these and it makes me so happy!!
How many of you go through tons of plastic food storage bags? Now you have the option to add reusable bags and slowly get rid of the plastic. I’m not saying to grab all those boxes and toss them. Take it one step at a time. Rome wasn’t built in a day right?
Here’s an amazing invention! Beeswax food wrap. I’m so excited about this one and you will be too. These are great for covering food, packing a snack and they are 100% environmentally safe!
Reusable grocery totes have been around for quite a while but more people are catching on. I love that you can wash them as well.
