There’s a lot of bags around here! Estimates are that in Chicago alone, there are 3.7 million plastic bags that are used DAILY. With that amount of sheer volume, we could be creating mess for ourselves that we will need to deal with, here in Chicago, for years to come.

Let’s not wait until this becomes an even bigger problem for our city, our neighborhoods, and our kids. There are simple ways to reduce the amount of waste we collectively produce by simply being smarter about types of material and products that we use to live our lives. That’s a responsibility that both citizens and businesses have to our great city every single day.
