An Environmental Look At Reusable Bags
A fascinating look at the entire lifespan of plastic and reusable bags. Interestingly, single use plastic isn't as bad as we're told, and reusable cotton bags, when you factor in the impact of growing the cotton, aren't that great. Remember, any study has a host of factors and the detail is in how you compare them. Still watching the video if just for the process of evaluating environmental affects is informative.
One note, this video doesn't take into account, making your fabric bag out of previously used fabric, like bed sheets.
Check out Green Wizard's own Teresa Peschel's book "SEW CLOTH GROCERY BAGS" to learn how to do just that.
