Plastic bags account for 90 percent of grocery bags in the United States.
99% of these bags are not recycled and end up landfill, harming wildlife and leaching toxins like dioxin and other carcinogens into the soil. It takes about 430,000 gallons of oil to produce 100 million plastic bags, and the US goes through 380 billion of them a year.
At this point, you have been probably gotten tired of being nagged about this and hearing how important it is to carry reusable cloth bags to the grocery store. But it is such a small, easy step that really makes a huge difference in terms of your environmental impact.
We can offer some help here at Inhabitat by providing you with a stylish organic tote bag that isn’t just an emergency stop-gap, but is an eco-fashion statement you will be proud to carry around with you.
Made from 100% organic cotton, these sturdy and stylish bags are printed with water-based eco-friendly inks (unlike nasty plastisol inks which most printers use). The bags are also made in the US and are extremely high-quality, rugged, and durable, so they won’t break after four shopping trips. Finally, with every Inhabitat Tote bag you purchase, you help support our publication and environmental design initiatives.
We have a limited quantity of these handmade eco-tote bags, so if you want one, act fast:
