We use approximately 1 million plastic bags every single minute in the US. If you've ever participated in a river or beach cleanup you know where many of them go. The damage they do to waterways and sealife is huge. And they are made of non-renewable fossil fuels for which we are fighting a losing warin Iraq. Isn't conservation the smart thing to do here?!

For that 2 minutes of convenience we get, the bags stay in the environment for up to one thousand years! Come on people, get over it. Grab a cloth bag and don't be part of the problem anymore.

This blog is going to be a compilation of current news stories about the worldwide campaign to eliminate the single use plastic bag. Thanks for reading.
