#2 - New Habits 2008 - Save the Environment

Some actual facts about plastic grocery bags:

According to the EPA, more than 380 billion plastic bags are used in the U.S. annually — and an estimated 100 billion are thrown away each year.
Most clog landfills, but many end up snagged on trees and fences as an ugly reminder of our disposable society.
And most plastic grocery bags are not biodegradable.
They actually break down into smaller and smaller toxic particles that pollute our oceans, rivers, lakes and soil.
Every year, thousands of animals, particularly marine mammals, choke to death after mistaking discarded plastic bags for food.

Today's giveaway at 5MinutesForMom will help you cut down on plastic grocery bag use. One lucky reader will receive three MinusBags. These sturdy twill bags are a great way to carry your groceries! They are trendy, fashionable & you will be helping to save our precious environment!
