Most plastic bags are still thrown into the trash. According to a study from the American Chemistry Council, 832 million pounds of bags are now recovered and recycled (that’s good), but about 80-85% of them (that amounts to 3-4 billion pounds of them!) wind up in landfills. Almost all of these bags are produced using chemicals derived from petroleum, a non-renewable resource.

Convert kids to glass cups.

Only one glass has been broken and the kids feel so much more mature using them.
If your child is suffering from a plastic or latex allergy rather than typical diaper rash your first clue would be that typical diaper rash cures do not have an effect. For example, your child may get the rash no matter how often you change his or her diaper.
Just imagine it. How many number of times do you buy goods in a 30-day span? 2? Four? Compute that in year. That’s how many disposable bags you can prevent from using within that phase of time. Keep in mind that disposable bags are non-biodegradable materials. Eventually, they would end up in the trash. Imagine the waste accumulation they would create over the century if every individual in the world uses them. Half of the globe’s realty would be filled with plastic-free!
Some stores also use recycled plastic bags instead of new bags. These bags come from the old plastic bags and they allow for the bags to be used over and over without extra pollution during the production process.
Drinking Glasses – Throw a lot of parties? That means there needs to be plenty of glasses. Buying bulk wine glasses ensures there will be plenty come party time, even if extra guests arrive.
