It's that time of year where everyone in your Facebook feed is bragging about their new gym membership and posting resolutions so the internet can hold them accountable in 2019. Maybe you've got some new goals for this year as well - awesome!
At Toolaloo, we're continuing to strive for a more eco-conscious lifestyle in 2019, while aiming to make it attainable for busy people everywhere.
We've got a simple suggestion to make this your greenest year yet. It doesn't require a huge investment or a monumental shift in your daily habits.
It's simple: start using those reusable bags again!
We know you all have them. They're piled in your garage, stuffed in your trunk, or lying around your pantry.
Let us give you three compelling reasons to get shopping with reusable bags this year. (Statistics from the Center for Biological Diversity)
- Americans use 100 billion plastic bags a year, which require 12 million barrels of oil to manufacture.
- The average American family takes home almost 1,500 plastic shopping bags a year - and only one percent of those are ever recycled!
- You use a plastic bag for 10 minutes to bring your groceries home. It takes 500 (or more) years for a plastic bag to degrade in a landfill.
We get it! Reusable bags are easy to forget and a pain to get out of your shopping cart when it's loaded with groceries and your kids are screaming at the checkout line.
Let us take the stress out of it with Toolaloo.
You can store your reusable bags in your car with Toolaloo and its headrest hook so you'll never forget bags at home again. It keeps your bags organized until you're ready to use them, and better yet, while you're shopping it attaches to your cart and keeps your hands free to grab fresh produce (or runaway toddlers). Plus it comes with an attachable drink holder.
This year commit to a resolution that is easy to keep and take a big step towards eco-friendly living at the same time.
