Earth Day is tomorrow…

Are you still using plastic bags? I hope not! Not only are they bad for the environment and wildlife, they are everywhere! I get so sick of seeing them in trees, on the side of the road, etc. It looks really trashy. Flag is a pretty aware, green city. I am shocked at the number of people still choosing plastic! For $1 you can get a pretty large bag, to reuse. At Basha’s and NF’s you get a rebate for using your own bag. If I go to NF’s with 3 bags, I get .15 off.

Plastic bags are petroleum based, 60,000 are used per minute in the US, they take 500 years to biodegrade. Where do they go? 95% go to landfills.”Flagstaff customers use more than 56,000 plastic bags per week. The Natural Resources Defense Council says Americans use 100 billion plastic bags per year.” (AZ Daily Sun
