• Reducing Your Carbon Footprint With Reusable Bags

    Reducing your carbon footprint is an eco-friendly lifestyle choice that may seem daunting, but is completely attainable. To best understand how to reduce your carbon footprint you need to understand what it is exactly.

So every time you drive your gas-powered car or carry groceries home in petroleum-based plastic bags you increase your carbon footprint.
