In one continent, they use 100 billion plastic bags a year.

So even if you put them in the trash can they still end up in our streams, rivers and even on the bottom of the ocean where animals like fish, turtles, seals and whales get stuck in one of them or eat these plastic bags. So, how are you going to reduce the damage you create when buying grocery and stuffs? How about paper bags, is it better? Making paper bags also depletes our natural resources because you need trees in order to produce one.
