WSJ Weighs in on Reusable Bags

Today The Wall Street Journal featured an article about reusable shopping bags, and how they illustrate some of the challenges of being eco-friendly. Overall, the article was well reasoned. Producing reusable bags is resource intensive, whether they are made from plastics or organic materials. However, if folks actually use them instead of disposable bags, there is a net benefit in reducing the estimated 100 billion disposable bags used (and thrown away) worldwide each year. While it can be difficult to calculate the exact ecological break-even point, as more countries, states and municipalities ban disposable bags and citizens become more eco-conscious, the trend towards reusable looks to be a benefit for the environment. whole-foods bag
