Are you sure you're doing your part?

If someone asked you if you were doing your part to help the planet, would you be telling the truth if you said yes? I don't boost to be an ecofriendly junkie, but I do what I can and can not do to help the planet. Choosing to use reusable shopping bags is just a small part. Look around the streets and see that litter? Now imagine how much is in the landfills? Yikes.. How about if you can do your part AND look awfully stylish at the same time?? Perfect right? Check out Envirosax reusable bags. I already placed an order. How stylish are these bags? Wait there's more.. not only are they adorable, they are also very reasonably priced at $8.50 a bag, AND they roll right up (size of a cellphone) to fit in your purse. No more forgetting to get the reusable shopping bags out of your trunk! How many times has that happened? Look, even if you don't order these bags, just please try and cut back your use of plastics bags. Because every time you forget to bring you own bags:

1. Approx. 380 billion plastic bags are used in the United States every year. That’s more than 1,200 bags per US resident, per year - Yes THAT much!
2. Only 1 to 2% of plastic bags in the USA end up getting recycled.
3. Thousands of marine animals and more than 1 million birds die each year as a result of plastic pollution.
4. The United Nations Environment Programme estimates that there are 46,000 pieces of plastic litter floating in every square mile of ocean.
They have a ton of cool colors and patterns to choose from..
