It’s time to re-think the faceless, disposable, environmentally harmful plastic bags you’ve been using for produce and everything else — Say NO to Plastic Bags! — and reduce your carbon footprint.
Quickly used, and even more quickly thrown away, plastic bags are not so easily disposed of — they are NOT biodegradable for 500 to 1,000 years. Every plastic bag ever manufactured, is still on this planet today.
Another important fact is that to live an anti-cancer lifestyle, you don’t want your food to touch plastic. The chemicals in plastics mimic estrogen and your body takes those toxic chemicals everywhere in your body that you use estrogen. A big contributor to environmental cancers.

Here are some facts about one-use plastic bags
Plastics now comprise one of the biggest threats to marine environments.
Plastic does NOT biodegrade. Over a trillion plastic bags are consumed each year. Scientists estimate that it takes 500 to 1000 years for a plastic bag to break down.
100,000 marine mammals and turtles die per year because they eat, swallow, or get tangled up in plastics.
Using reusable bags could replace roughly 1.3 trillion plastic bags in our life time!
