When it comes to plastic bags, there are two major reasons for using your own reusable bags. First of all, you will be doing your bit to try to save the planet, as plastic bags are littering landfills, clogging waterways and putting wildlife in danger.
Second, you will be saving money if you remember everytime you go grocery shopping to take a reusable bag with you. For example, in Connecticut it was recently implemented a fee of 10 cents for each plastic bag the store gives to you for your groceries. Therefore, you can save a lot of money in the long run, given the fact that surely there are times when you need so much more than just one plastic bag in one grocery shopping trip.
