and closely approaching 1 trillion bags annually? That’s over 1 million plastic bags per
minute! If this fact isn’t nauseating enough, now consider that 1 single-use plastic bag
takes 1,000 years to degrade in a landfill!

Now the good news:
Each high quality reusable bag you use has the potential to eliminate an average of
1,000 plastic bags over its lifetime! You can see how quickly we can make a positive
impact on the environment if we each incorporate the use of reusable bags into our lives.
