This week the NY Times once again tackled the ever-popular issue of plastic bag usage in an article called “Seeing a Pitched Battle Over Plastic Bags.”

The article addresses both sides of the issue – plastic bags do have their place in the world of collecting waste or protecting against environmental agents but they also contribute tons of non-biodegradable mass to our landfills every year.

We here at Eco-Bags recognize that there is a place for plastic but our overall use needs to be significantly reduced. The average household consumes 100’s of plastic bags every year and uses most only a single time. An eco-friendly reusable bag would be a far superior substitute for these types of applications.

As far as the dog poop….reach for some plastic.
