Reusable Shopping Bags

I watched an Oprah re-run today that she did a few days ago on Earth Day. She did a story on waste. It all goes into the ocean and it covers the size of Texas. This is so harmful to our sweet little animals in the ocean. Look at these pictures.

The last is of a sea turtle who swam through a plastic ring when he was little and it got stuck while he continued to grow. So sad.

Mom and I have decided from now on to only use reusable shopping bags when we go grocery shopping. Walmart is selling them for 50 cents and I hope eventually plastic bags will no longer exist! It's actually way easier to bring your groceries into your house with your reusable shopping bag because you can strap it over your shoulder instead of cut the circulation off your wrist with the plastics! The key is just to remember to keep it in your car so you won't forget and leave it at home when you go to Walmart. It seems like such a small thing to do but if everyone did it, I feel like it will majorly help our little sea creatures and their innoscent little world. I hope I've encourage you to purchase the 50 cent reusable 'green' shopping bags at Walmart the next time you go shopping!
