Every year, 500 billion to 1 trillion plastic bags are used, but less than 1% are recycled. That is over one MILLION per MINUTE. We MUST stop this. This is wasting our resources at an INSANE rate. If we don't act now and convert to reusable bags instead of plastic ones, the world will be left with little plastic, and our companies (HEB, Walmart, etc) will continue lose money quickly due to costs for plastic in the longrun.
