Happy Earth Day!!

Hi, everyone!  In honor of Earth Day, here is an easy way we can all be a little more green - start carrying reusable bags!  Here are a few quick facts (from www.reusablebags.com) that I recently read and found pretty startling:

Introduced just over 25 years ago, the ugly truth about our plastic bag addiction is that society’s consumption rate is now estimated at well over 500,000,000,000 (that’s 500 billion) plastic bags annually, or almost 1 million per minute.

  • Single-use bags made of high-density polyethylene (HDPE) are the main culprit. Once brought into existence to tote your purchases, they’ll accumulate and persist on our planet for up to 1,000 years.
  • Plastic bags cause over 100,000 sea turtle and other marine animal deaths every year when animals mistake them for food.
  • The average family accumulates 60 plastic bags in only four trips to the grocery store.
  • Each high quality reusable bag you use has the potential to eliminate an average of 1,000 plastic bags over its lifetime. The bag will pay for itself if your grocery store offers a $.05 or $.10 credit per bag for bringing your own bags.

Okay, so now here is the fun part!  Check out the Green Bag Lady’s website at http://greenbaglady.blogspot.com/.  She has free patterns and even video tutorials showing how to make a simple reusable bag!  I haven’t tried it yet, but at least it looks easy!!  :)  She also has a giveaway going on for earth day…if you leave a comment on her blog you have a chance to win one of 40 bags she is giving away!

Personally, I think carrying reusable bags is a really great (and pretty simple) way to live a more earth friendly life!  I got into the habit of using them at the grocery store while shopping at Aldi (oh my gosh, the bargain hunter in me LOVES that place!), because at Aldi, you either bring your own bags or buy those that you need.  Now I’m realizing that I need to start using them at the other stores that I go to as well.  So who is with me??  I’m making it a goal (and since I’m telling you all it will help keep me accountable) to drastically cut down on our family’s plastic bag usage.  Maybe by Earth Day 2011, we’ll be able to say that we use reusable bags everywhere that we go!

Find me on Facebook!
