Consider environment while holiday shopping

Success - Article sent! close

The holiday season means lots of shopping. Please consider using reusable shopping bags while you shop.

The city of Chicago alone uses over 2,000 plastic shopping bags a minute. Worldwide we use 1 million plastic bags a minute.

Non-renewable resources are used to make these single-use disposable bags and the litter is not only an eyesore, but a danger to animals.

I bet you pass a bag or two either hanging in a tree or on the side of the road every day.

Small steps can make a difference. Please be the change in our throw-away world and bring your own bag.
