Considering the massive dead zone the size of the state of Texas off the once pristine California coast, logic should compel all of use to eliminate all sources of plastic from bags to bottles. Those used by necessity must be recycled.
Lobbyists from the plastics industries purposefully ignore the deleterious consequences of toxins in our environment as congresspersons are persuaded, financially remunerated or otherwise pressured to support the use of plastics despite worldwide scientific evidence of it’s inability to disintegrate into an innocuous elements, cause irreversible damage to marine life and flood our bodies with Xenoestrogens that trigger premature maturation in children as well as trigger carcinogenic responses in our bodies.
I’ve been using canvas bags since 1989 when I lived in Seattle. They are strong, don’t break, are easy to carry, wash and re-use. When you buy a canvas bag online through an environmental website such as WWF, EDF, IFAW, IDA you save an innocent life, our beautiful earth and your back.
