Day 97: Brought Plastic Bags to be Recycled

Day 97: Brought Plastic Bags to be Recycled

I dropped off plastic bags to be recycled.

My roommate accumulates them, so I store as many of them as I can under my sink in an old cereal box for future use, but some have holes and can’t be used again.

I see recycling as the next best option next to avoiding bags at the store or reusing them when buying in bulk.

A five-year-long study by the Ocean Conservancy found that small plastic bags made up about 9 percent of the debris found along various U.S. coasts. Get this and more facts about plastic bags from where you can also find a plastic bag recycling location by you.

What was your simple green act for the day?

  • Great work. Not many people realize you can return bags to the store for recycling

    Thanks. Earth911 is a great resource to see where you can recycle things.
