Over 50,000 communities world wide have woken up to the fact that single use plastic bags are BAD!
Bad for the environment, bad for the municipalities, bad for the tax payers.
They never biodegrade, they clog up sewer systems, they hang decoratively from trees, they get into our food chain, they kill animals, and there are thousands more reasons why they are bad.
However most single use plastic ban legislation does not cover the plastic produce bags that are commonly used to package produce.
Unfortunately these plastic produce bags are often mistaken for candy by the consumer. I have seen shoppers pulling on that roll with such vigor, taking 10-20 bags at a time, to then package up in each bag one bundle of already plastic wrapped bananas, and one plastic wrapped ice berg lettuce head. And most don’t use all bags they pre-pulled, and leave them laying in their cart for the wind to carry off. No thought.
Fortunately, there is a WAY better solution.
Mothering Mother, a company founded by Pelham Resident Sydney McInnes, has tackled just that problem. Their cotton reusable bags help to make the commitment to health with reusable produce bags, bulk bags and totes. Shopping with cotton gives a gentle, ongoing reminder to eat well, for your health and the health of the planet. Bag single use plastic habits once and for all!
