Stop using plastic bags

I am concerned about our environment for now and future decades. Using plastic bags will fill our landfill with nonbiodegradable materials.

I'm an occupational safety and health specialist, my late husband was a forester by profession. I am concerned about our environment for now and future decades. \

Using plastic bags will fill our landfill with nonbiodegradable materials. This is hazardous to our environment! I'm also concerned about our forest that provides oxygen for our environment.

My suggestion would be to recycle paper bags, which is being done, or use reusable cloth bags. A clean environment would help provide us a healthy environment hopefully to live a full and healthy life!
