Bring your own:
- * Bag
- * Mug
- * To-go container
- * Bottled H2O
If we use cloth bags we save six bags a week, 288 bags a year, or 22,176 bags in an average lifetime.
If just 1 out of 5 people in our country did this, we would save 1,330,560,000,000 bags over our lifetime.
* Grocery and department stores can educate their customers and encourage them to bring their own bags by offering a discount for each plastic bag not used. * Grocery and department stores can provide easy to use recycling bins.
* Coffee shops can promote bringing your own cup.
* Office-based businesses can provide purified water dispensers for their employees instead of single serve bottles.
