July 30, 2010, Newsletter Issue #41: Carry Cloth

Tip of the Week

There have been reports of birds and marine life ingesting or being strangled by stray plastic bags. Carry a cloth bag for shopping so you won't need to take plastic ones from stores. The production of paper bags is more energy-intensive, but plastic bags take longer to break down. Health food outlets often favour hemp bags because hemp is stronger than cotton but doesn't depend on pesticides for optimal growth.
