Interesting post on the blog CT Green Scene looking at just how “green” are the green bags available at pretty much every grocery store nowadays. I mean they typically are made of some sort of plastic and that plastic isn’t going to break down. When the bag gets a tear and can’t be reused what do we do with them? Landfill?
Check out the chart on 1 Bag At A Time comparing the life cycle impact of different types of bags.
I see the glass as half full. These reusable bags made of plastic are a start toward a greener scene. What do you think?
