Our philosophy is simple... we are trying to save the world one bag at a time! We can argue about how many tons of landfill are accounted for by plastic bags, or how many seals and dolphins suffer a slow and painful death after ingesting bags, but we cannot avoid the conclusion that if we want to live in a society that generates as little waste as possible, we must act in areas where its easy to make that change - bring your own bag!
Similar to candy wrappers, chewing gum, cigarette butts, and thousands of other pieces of junk, millions of the plastic bags end up as litter. Once in the environment, it takes months to hundreds of years for plastic bags to breakdown. As they decompose, tiny toxic bits seep into soils, lakes, rivers, and the oceans.
There is something about using The Inconvenient Bag… a certain positive energy you feel when you leave the grocery store or mall with your bags filled knowing that you didn’t need to take any paper or plastic bags home. Laws are changing and we are being charged for paper bags, but just bring your own bag, save the fee and be happy!
