According to the web site of Reusablebags.com, an estimated 500 billion to 1 trillion plastic bags are used, and discarded, annually worldwide, and it cites the EPA as estimating that Americans use over 380 billion plastic bags, sacks, and wraps every year. When these bags are discarded, they break down, and harm the environment by killing marine mammals and contaminating soil and water.

Knowing this, I think it's time we spread the word and pledge to use reusable bags ALWAYS!

      using a reusable bag is helping the world, even if it's only a small step.
