California Bans the Plastic Bag!

This is FABULOUS news:
Today as I shopped at a Jewel Osco grocery store in Chicago, I was sick to see every item loaded into a plastic bag. I found the same situation as I traveled through New York and Michigan last week. In Minnesota I see more reusable bags and brown paper bags. This was not the case in either the state of New York or City of Chicago, plastic bags dominate!

The chemicals from these bags leach out into our waterways from the land fills where they will sit for hundreds of years. Also they litter our landscape and are harmful to wildlife.
What can you do?
1. Bring reusable bags shopping. I would use washable bags that will last.  Contact me and I can tell you where to purchase them.  I can sell you my health4earth bags, but they are expensive
2. Wash, dry and recycle any plastic bags at most grocery stores.
3. Refuse, refuse, refuse plastic!
4. Never litter!

I too am worried about the future of our birds, butterflies bees, and all of us!  I have noticed a big decline in the hummingbirds and butterflies in the last 4 years.

Hope I see you in New York City on Sunday!

This month, something amazing is happening. While the UN meets to discuss the climate, people from all over the world are coming together with a single message:

“It’s time to take action on climate change.”

In one week, on Sunday September 21, we’ll be joining the People’s Climate March on the streets of New York City to demand world leaders turn talk into action when they meet at the United Nations General Assembly later this month.

Together, we can make a difference!!
