Did you know, in some parts of the ocean, there are 6 lbs. of plastic for every pound of fish. There's a lot of crazy statistics on the harm our use of plastic bags cause. Here in Italy, you have to pay an extra 5 cents for a plastic bag at the supermarket, so people are encouraged to bring their bags from home or reuse plastic bags. There are a lot of really cute reusable and eco-friendly bags out there, so I suggest you invest in one for your grocery shopping trips!
