For some, it can be hard to imagine a world without plastic – especially plastic bags. While some people have been going without plastic bags for years – even decades – plastic bags are still tremendously overused. And according to the Environmental Protection Agency, more than 380 billion plastic bags are used in the United States every year. Fortunately for our environment society is starting to catch on as more and more individuals are using reusable bags. In fact, politicians in several cities and states are proposing bans or fees on plastic bags. So once we’ve mastered bringing our own bags to the checkout, what else can we do to reduce our carbon footprint? We can start bringing reusable bags to the produce department of the grocery store – and Credo Bags’ Reusable Mesh Produce Bag can help you with your new plastic-free mission.
