Why dont we just stop existing already jeeeeezzzzz with all the problems in the world u spent time making this video
I've been into utilizing "reusable bags" for everything, since the 1970's; and was lovingly called "the bag lady" in High School. In the '80's I went for "bags with a cause". The "give back" off-sets the production. If we can remove 10 carbon footsteps (in each action) or remove a few kilowatts and a few gallons of water, from (y)our day, well, WE CAN give his Big Blue Marble a break. Still smiling about her daily!
I saw a video recently of all the discarded unwanted clothing. Why not get these companies together and reclaim some, or all, of this clothing to make tote bags from? People used to do this in the past to make quilts, for example. Reuse, repurpose!
They are anyday much better than plastic bags... They won't lie in the soil for hundreds of years and they won't harm aquatic life...
Change the way we grow cotton. Hydroponically?
No they are not fucking made of cotton they are made of polypropylene
The Danish study on which your figures rely explicitly disregards the fact that plastic bags may end up in nature, and assumes that cotton bags are produced in China, where energy generation is based mostly on coal. As a result, most of the impact is linked to the industrial process (yarn, weaving), very little to fiber growing. Note also that this study has not been published in a peer-reviewed journal.
Hemp cleans the soil. But USA pushed cotton production
so use the ones made of recycled plastic, that should help
I reuse paper bags until they fall apart and use 2 totes all the time.....
They should make panda friendly bamboo tote bags!
I use cotton bags and although having been used once or twice a week they are still perfect after far more than 10 years and it looks as if these will even last another 10 years!!!
Shopping bags are not a fashion statement!
Use what you have.
Quit buying junk!
