If you visit five stores a week, four weeks a month and receive only an average of two bags per store, you will have received ten disposable bags a week or forty in a month. These bags are rarely recycled, in fact it has been estimated that out of 400 billion plastic bags used in the USA only 4 billion are recycled thats only 1%!
The bags are often just thrown out or used to hold trash. Once the bag is disposed of it can take 1000 years before it decomposes. Bags that don't end up in the landfill can find there way into the wild or into oceans where thousands of animals are killed by them every year(often due to thinking the bag is food). The use of organic cotton bags helps eliminate this waste. An organic cotton bag while last a very long time and can replace up to 1000 plastic bags. The organic bags often hold more and can be used many times over.
Organic cotton bags also save you trouble as they are sturdier, can carry more, don't break as often, and look better then plastic bags. Isn't it good to know you can help the environment and yourself at the same time.
