Looking around the environment, it is common to see plastic all around us. There are plastic bags, plastic bottles, and other items that make one wonder how many billions of years it will take to decompose such items. Additionally, tons of plastic is discarded in our trash, but there has to be an alternative way to dispose of plastic in an environmentally friendly way.

Avoid Plastic Bags

There is definitely something, we as a society can do to minimize the use of plastic. One solution is to carry reusable natural fiberbags. This is a simple solution, yet so many of us are so used to using plastic bags that it is hard to try something different.  It’s habit as supermarkets provide plastic bags at checkout seemingly for free, but we have to realize that the use of plastic bags is often costly to our environment. Carrying natural fiber bags provides a reusable alternative that eliminates the need to safely decompose plastic bags.

Most people fail to consider the risks associated with using plastic bags since the consequences are not immediate but it is important to consider how today’s plastic will affect future generations and the planet they will have to live on. Unfortunately, we cannot build another planet for them. The preservation of the environment and passing down the practice of sustainability is vital for the future.

Trading in plastic bags for reusable bags may seem like a tiny contribution towards the protection of our environment, but it is an important start. Let us all make a commitment to avoid using plastic bags starting today. Instead use our reliable, biodegradable, and eco-friendly bag. It is an important positive step in doing our part to keep our world beautiful and safe for years to come.
