Project 40 & Figuring it Out – Day 8 – Plastic Bags

Day 8: plastic bags 😞

I was impressed when CA passed Prop 67 to ban single-use plastic bags in stores and charges customers 10 cents for other kinds of bags. That’s a start!

After Mike came home from Italy he said all of Europe is heading in the direction of banning plastic bags.

The article below is telling that most countries are trying...the US not so much. This means that we as individuals need to do our part, right?!?

I am absolutely guilty of using a couple plastic bags for produce (even at the Merc!). Today I will buy some reusable bags for produce, nuts, spices...and vow not to take another plastic bag.

Who will join me?
