GIFTS THAT GIVE BACK~ GIVEAWAY Bring Your Own Bag Individual Eco-Kit

Did you know that every year, 500 billion to 1 trillion of plastic bags are consumed worldwide. Because only 1 in every 200 bag is ever recycled, almost all of them are discarded and enter our landfills, get blown everywhere, and float around in our oceans. Because plastic bags don’t decompose well, their toxic elements seep into our soils, lakes, rivers, and oceans. They harm land, air, and sea creatures. And because they can take 400 to 1000 years to break down, they can do a lot of damage for a very long time.

This season (and all year long!) make the switch to eco-bags from companies who are committed to creating a healthier planet for future generations.  At Conserving Now (an online community of earth friendly individuals who care about our planet.) you can find helpful tips, info, products and education resources and great eco-gifts everyone will appreciate.

The average individual uses 500-700 plastic bags per year.  A “Bring Your Own Bag Individual Eco-Kit” is a great choice for family gift giving that has the added benefit of helping the recipient make an environmental difference! This individual eco-kit from contains everything you need to remember to bring your own bags!
