OK, here’s something I just learned. Most plastic bags are not made from oil, but from natural gas. We produce 80% or so of our own natural gas. Still, that said, plastic bags still suck. They pollute waterways, clog landfills and kill wildlife. Plus, plastic bags are around for a very long time.
I use reusable bags most of the time. I sometimes have to make sure I get paper bags once-in-awhile, to put my recycling in. A great source for reusable bags is http://www.reusablebags.com/ My favorite bag is the ACME bag 1500 workhorse. If folds into it’s own pouch that is so tiny it can fit into a pocket and I usually carry a couple in my purse.
Just remember “Plastic Bags Blow”.
