An action that will make a difference for our planet!

The Whole Foods chain has decided to eliminate the use of all plastic grocery bags throughout the chain by this coming Earth Day, April 22, 2008. Whole Foods estimates that they will eliminate 100 million plastic bags from our environment by discontinuing their use from Earth Day to the end of 2008.
Plastic bags are petroleum based and they fill landfills, harm nature and litter our communities. Since it can take more than 1,000 years for a plastic bag to break down in a landfill, polymers of every single plastic bag ever produced still exist on our planet. As they break down, plastic bags go through photodegradation

    I would love something you screen printed so if you do one, I will buy one- you can’t have enough canvas bags!

    Yes, I ordered canvas bags to screen print, but alas with the move I have not had the time to do it. I did put my design on Cafe Press though for now. basie9designs
