Weekly Sustainability Tip:
Switch to Reusable Shopping Bags
Switch to reusable shopping bags. Americans are addicted to plastic bags with approximately 380 billion bags used annually, which is more than 1,200 bags per year per person.
This is a dangerous addiction that results in the use of 12 million barrels of oil, and negatively affects 267 species of marine wildlife.
Do your part to end this national addiction by using reusable bags on your errands. And remember to recycle that pile of plastic bags you have at home at the entrance of Smith’s.
Don’t be the cause of pollution, be the solution!
