Recently I went to Canada for sight-seeing. When I went to a shop with my family and when we bought something I was very surprised that they had reduced the use of shopping bags in every store; just like the ones you would see in Shoprite or Walmart. It had become a law, shopping bags are no longer free and if you want a bag it should cost 5 cents.
Canada is ahead of us, taking major steps to recycling and clean energy. People there use reusable bags which have also caught on here in NJ, but are not enforced as strongly.
Take the pledge NOW to help REDUCE the use of shopping/disposable bags and START the encouragement of reusable bags!
