Reusable bags are sensible alternative to paper and plastic bags. By using reusable bags, not only can you lug around your groceries, you can also play your part in preserving the environment. Over the course of the year, over 360 billion plastic bags are used in the United States alone. The sad news is that it takes over 1000 years for plastic bags to break down within a landfill.
As plastic bags break down they separate into smaller toxic bits that other creatures inadvertently eat. Most animals do not have the ability to rid their bodies of this foreign material and it is because of this that many of our most exotic species are dying off. The production of plastic grocery bags consumes huge amounts of oil that could otherwise be used to meet our fuel demands. By using biodegradable reusable grocery bags you are, in your own way, helping with our fuel crisis. The production of paper bags consumes huge amounts of trees, and this should be avoided since we’re trying to preserve our environment. It takes years for a tree to grow into maturity, and only a few seconds for it to be chopped down. Why should a tree be sacrificed in order for us to transport our groceries? We shouldn’t have to sacrifice our world just so that we can easily transport our groceries, and in all honesty, why should we?
This is where reusable bags come in. Reusable grocery bags are made from recycled and biodegradable materials. They are very rugged and dependable, and can be used over and over again. Unlike plastic bags, reusable grocery bags do not have any negative impact on the environment. When you throw away your reusable grocery bag, over the course of time, it will break down into non-toxic biodegradable pieces. Also, the length of time that it takes for a reusable grocery bag to become worn out is substantially larger than that of a paper or plastic bag. This means that you won’t have to replace your bag for some time.
Currently the country is thinking about following in Ireland’s footsteps and instituting a tax on all plastic bags. By doing so not only will the government received more of an income, they will also be able to effectively discontinue plastic bags for the most part. By using reusable grocery bags you can effectively avoid this future tax.
Another benefit of reusable biodegradable bags is the relative cost. Most, if not all, reusable biodegradable bags are extremely affordable. Considering that you will only have to purchase two or three and they will last you for years, it is even more affordable. So why should you delay any longer? Go out and purchase your own reusable grocery bag.Immobilienmakler Heidelberg Makler Heidelberg Schnell, zuverlässig und kompetent
