What Can I Do? No more plastic shopping bags.

It's a no brainer people. Reusable shopping bags are easier to use. They carry more. They stack up neatly in the car. Oranges don't roll out of them when you turn left. And they don't end up in some poor seagull's stomach.

This link will show you how terrible plastic really is.

The number that leapt out at me was that 100,000 marine animals are estimated to die every year from ingesting plastic.

We can do better than this.

It's not hard to transition to reusables. They're easy to find, and they're inexpensive. I've had some of the same shopping bags for ten years, and they're still going strong.

But there's more you can do. Write a letter to your city council asking that they consider banning plastics. Already hundreds of US cities have banned the use of the plastic bags. To see which ones they are, follow this link: https://www.forbes.com/sites/trevornace/2018/09/20/heres-a-list-of-every-city-in-the-us-to-ban-plastic-bags-will-your-city-be-next/#4f9754293243

Beyond plastic bags, another easy thing you can do is make shopping choices that avoid plastic as much as possible. Off the top of my head I can tell you that Brianna's has glass bottled salad dressing that is delicious, California Olive Ranch uses a glass bottle in their second to larger size for their excellent Olive Oil, and Classico uses real live canning jars to package their pasta sauces. Honestly these brands are the best tasting I've found anyway.

If you've found great brands that use glass bottles instead of plastic, please leave the information below in the comments!

Let's keep our oceans beautiful! Let's all do what we can to protect them!
