green is beautiful

The problem:
  • 14 plastic bags contain enough petroleum to drive a car a mile
  • 380 billion plastic bags or wraps are thrown away in America each year
  • making a paper bag emits 70% more global warming gases then making a plastic bag
  • 0 paper bags biodegrade in landfills due to lack of oxygen
  • cities spend up to 17 cents per bag in disposal costs, wasting millions of tax dollars
So....please go green and bring reusable bags with you when you go shopping.
(Be a mother lover!)
