Created by a mother-daughter team, Gayle & Meghan, ConservingNow is leading the way to a greener planet! ConservingNow.com is a great resource for information on how you can help save our planet! They also have products and opportunities for each of us to change something! We can make a difference! If each person (using 1,200 plastic bags a year) would use a reusable bag HALF of the time that would make a huge dent in the pollution problem!
- Approx. 380 billion plastic bags are used in the United States every year. That’s more than 1,200 bags per US resident, per year.
- Approx. 100 billion of the 380 billion are plastic shopping bags.
- An estimated 12 million barrels of oil is required to make that many plastic bags.
- Only 1 to 2% of plastic bags in the USA end up getting recycled.
- Thousands of marine animals and more than 1 million birds die each year as a result of plastic pollution.
I have several reusable bags. Here's my secret: I FORGET THEM ALL. THE. TIME! What good are these bags if you don't remember them? Exactly, they aren't! That's why you can get a FREE window cling reminder to bring your own bag!
Your cling goes on your car window as a reminder to take your reusable bags in the store!
ConservingNow is also going to help you get started by giving away an Envirosax bag to one lucky What Mommy Wants reader!
Here's my review of the Envirosax bag:
The envirosax bag is very well made and is also quite large when open! I could easily fit a whole "things I forgot" shopping trip in this bag! I also really like the shape of the handles! The handles are wide, which makes carrying a full bag a lot more comfortable!
On the inside of the bag you can see the folding instructions!
And when folded it fits in your hand and coincidentally, your purse or glove box!
I love the prints! There are 46 to choose from on ConservingNow.com! The one I chose is from the "After Dark" collection! It reminded me of cherry blossoms which I love!I love the Envirosax bag!!! I will definitely be getting more of these! Maybe the set of 5 would be great for a full shopping trip!
