Much of our world’s focus has been pulled towards our world’s pending environmental destruction. Landfills are filling up faster than ever before, our natural resources are being used at a record rate, and extinction of marine life from man-made pollution has become a far too common occurrence. Big problems, that are only getting worse with each generation. So where do we start? Actually, it’s as easy as a trip to the grocery store. The answer is simple: recyclable bags. Something to consider: Assume that you visit the grocery store once a week to buy groceries for you and your family. Each visit, you bring home 5 plastic grocery bags packed with your assorted goods. After 52 weeks (1 year), that 5 plastic bags has grown into 260 bags, just for one household. Assuming you live to be 75 years old, you could easily use a total of 19,500 plastic bags in your lifetime. Just to tote mac and cheese! Of course with the knowledge that this is an educated hypothetical scenario, the actual statistics are not looking promising. There are approximately 1 trillion plastic bags used every year worldwide and it takes a whopping 1,000 years to break down a single bag. That is a long time!
