Reusable Bags: Say No to Plastic Bags

Just Say No To Plastic Bags!
Did you know that about 100 billion plastic bags are being discarded by Americans yearly? Did you also know that it takes about 1,000 years for a plastic bag to decompose? Unfortunately, plastic bags end up in oceans, lakes and landfills leaving it a disaster for wildlife. Plastic bags are a critical hazard to the environment that are being excessively used and discarded. Sadly, stores give out endless amounts of plastic bags to customers for free!
I was ecstatic when I found out late last year that people in California voted to ban plastic bags in stores statewide. I was actually one of many who voted to play a part in banning plastic bags! If you forget your reusable bag, stores in California also gives you an option to purchase a reusable bag for about 10 cents. Ecologically, banning plastic bag statewide is a wonderful thing! Even if you do not live in California, you can choose to stop using plastic bags and start using reusable bags to play a part in helping the environment! Try to also bring awareness to those around you about the harmful effects of plastic bags.

Esse Reusable Grocery Bag Set

I was so happy to team up with Esse and to receive a premium reusable grocery bag set! The set includes three reusable bags with a carrying tote that are made from recycled water bottles. I especially love how durable these bags are compared to normal reusable bags since they can hold up to 35 lbs! I also found it convenient how these bags fold up and fit in the small carrying tote it comes with. Lets all try to be part of the solution rather than be the problem!

Esse did provide me a sample of the reusable bag set. Nonetheless, I only recommend items that I use personally and honestly like.
