Earth Day is April 22. This year, make a vow to switch to reusuable tote bags instead of paper or plastic!
The following paragraph was in my first book, Harmonious Environment, published two years ago. Before the book came out, I rarely saw people using reusable shopping bags--now I see them everywhere! I'm not saying this paragraph made the difference (although I am hoping it made some..)The point is, consciousness about the need to green up our lifestyles has firmly taken root.
Tote Bags for Shopping
A monumental waste of resources and a source of pollution are the billions of plastic and paper shopping bags we dispose of after one trip to the store. Try collecting some tote bags and use them when shopping instead of plastic or paper. Once you get used to them, you will love them! They can hold a ton of stuff and are tough—so no more ripped open bags with your purchases scattered everywhere. For the holidays this year, buy them for your friends and family—let’s start a revolution!
