It’s not about doing it all. It is about doing what you can.
The world is vulnerable and we can protect it by being conscious of our choices each day. Plastic for everything all the time is not a right. It is a luxury, and a choice, that costs us all dearly. Excessive packaging is really easy to give up. Giving it up is an immediate improvement in our quality of life.
If the bag is really important to you buy one that you can use again.
Below are a few quotes I cut and pasted from the net.
Message in a Bottle
Seabirds are starving with bellies full of trash. Fur seals in New Zealand poop shards of yellow and blue. The Great Pacific Garbage Patch is twice the size of Texas. Now the bad news: Plastic never goes away, and scientists are finding that it absorbs toxins with spongelike efficiency. The fix? Cut it off at the source.

” the Garbage Patch as two to three times the size of Texas, but in fact it might be far larger–as much as 5 million square miles, or one and a half times the size of the United States. Sailors encounter it within 500 miles of the California coast and 200 miles off Japan.”
