California made history November 8, 2016 by becoming the first state to officially ban single-use plastic bags. By removing plastic bags from the equation, it will help reduce litter, cleanup costs and save our natural resources. 25 million plastic bags are polluted in California every day. Make it a habit and B.Y.M.B. – that is, Bring Your Mixed Bag – every time you go out. The benefits are in the bag and you don’t have to live in California to start!
Remembering to bring your own reusable bag will definitely take some time getting use to. For now, here are a few easy tips you can do to help you remember:
– Keep one in your purse or backpack at all times
– Hang a few on the coat rack, front closet or by the front door
– Keep bags in the front seat or trunk of your car
– Stash a few bags in your office
Avoid the 10 cent charge by bringing a mixed bag with you to the grocery store, errands and everywhere in between. We have a variety of patterns and sizes to choose from so you can shop in style and save the planet all at the same time. Perfect for the on-the-go, eco-friendly shopper.
With the holidays around the corner, ’tis the season to go green. Our foldable grocery bags make great stocking stuffers. Start shopping our collection of reusable bags today and don’t forget to reduce, reuse and re-cute!
