Neither! Single-use shopping bags create a tremendous amount of waste for something that’s often in our lives for fewer than 5 minutes. Each year, the US consumes 30 BILLION plastic and 10 BILLION paper grocery bags requiring 14 million trees and 12 million barrels of oil.
Every time you shop for groceries, BYOB (Bring Your Own Bag). Be a role model. Other shoppers will watch, be inspired and learn. Learn more about the Bay Area BYOB Campaign by visiting igotmybag.org
