Plastic Baggies


Here's the problem:
Finding oil.
Digging up oil with trucks.
Oil refineries.
Transporting oil.
Bag factories.
Transporting bags.

There's lots of pollution and oil consumption
through every stage of a baggie's life.

They're used once. Maybe 2 or 3 times.

Then tossed.
Garbage trucks.
Or maybe recycling truck, if lucky.
Then a long trip down a highway.
A recycling factory.
Then another truck, to another store. 

The life cycle of a baggie is not very pretty.

How many does your family use every day? 

 With 7 billion people, it all adds up. 

Reusables are the way to go!
