Switch to a Recycled Trash Bag
Yes, even your trash bag can be greener. Did you know that the usual plastic trash bag that you use in your kitchen creates an enormous amount damage to our earth? If every U.S. household switched twenty of the usual virgin plastic tall kitchen drawstring trash bags to twenty 65 percent recycled bags , we’d save 39,000 barrels of oil (enough to heat and cool 2,200 U.S. households for a years). We’d also free up 720,000 cubic feet of landfill space (1,100 garbage trucks’ worth). And, we’d reduce the air pollution by 30 million pounds. That’s not insignificant at all! The numbers only get better as the percentage of recycled material used to create the bags goes up, so find some recycled trash bags today and give up your virgin plastic bags.
