Green Bags



-- Quote of the Day -- 

"Too many of us consent, or are forced, to spend time doing things for which we have no heartfelt reason… We do it to hold a job, to make a living, to satisfy the expectations of others, to fill our time, to evade the fact that we don’t know what else to do – but not because the doing comes from inside us. When our action is dictated by factors external to our soul, we do not live active lives, but reactive lives."

~ Parker Palmer




-- Green Bags --

*Today's article was written by Douglas Lober, founder of ReuseThisBag.com . It is his belief that by using green bags will one day eliminate single use paper and plastic bags.



There are many benefits that green bags can have on the environment. One of the largest benefits is the reduction of the waste people produce. Plastic bags take up enormous amount of space in the landfills around the world. Unfortunately, this problem will only be reduced if people would switch to another reusable type of bags that does not sit in the landfills. Many people are unaware of how big the carbon footprint is from producing plastic bags. The manufacturing plants that produce plastic bags emit a large amount of toxic chemicals into the atmosphere creating air pollution.

There are other benefits to the environment by using green bags. Some of these benefits include the benefits to the ocean and the seas. There are many creatures that have died or become injured, because plastic bags make their way into the water. They entangle the creatures in the bags, and cause them to be injured or to die. The reduction in using plastic bags can help these bags not to end up in the ocean or sea. Many lives of the sea or ocean creatures can be saved by not using plastic bags.

Reusable bags help to decrease the increasing amount of waste that people produce. Sometimes plastic bags are burned in an effort to reduce the space they take up in landfills. Burning these plastic bags result in harmful chemicals being poured into the atmosphere. These chemicals can cause serious illnesses as well as death over time. Plant life, animals and all living things are affected by the harmful chemicals that are released into the air. This causes major pollution that takes many years to clean up, if it can be cleaned up completely. Using green bags can help to reduce waste and clean the quality of air that is available.
