Plastic Bags Blow!

    Newer Older

    Every year, around 500 billion plastic bags are used worldwide. 500,000,000,000. When I see wayward plastic bags blowing and being caught on trees and bushes I am reminded why I use reusable bags. I little effort on my part helps eliminate plastic bag pollution as noted in the photo.
    By refusing to use plastic bags, we can make a huge difference to the pollution problem.
    Take care of the earth and she will take care of you.

      Good shot and commentary to remind us of a very important issue! I also carry reusable bags with me, for exactly the same reasons. We need more people to it, so thank you for promoting it here!

      I still take plastic bags to avoid purchasing them so I can pick up the dog deposits...thus, my contribution is to re-use and I can guarantee none of mine end up blowing away!

      This photograph was used in an on-line article by American Architect Magazine.
      They gave you a credit line but, may I ask, did they actually pay you for the usage?

      No they didn't as I have a creative commons license on all of my photos. All I ask for is photo credit.
