Reusable Shopping Bags - $2.00 Each
More than 380 billion plastic bags are used in the United States every year. Of those, approximately 100 billion are plastic shopping bags, which cost retailers about $4 billion annually.
According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, only 1% of plastic bags were recycled in 2000.
What are the benefits of reusable bags?
- They have a much lower life cycle impact than any single-use bag
- Hold around twice as many items as plastic bags
- Easier to carry as they have more comfortable handles
- Won't burst under the weight of heavy shopping items such as soft drinks
- Reduce the number of plastic bags that are produced, recycled and disposed of
