Paper bags were first used in retail for carrying items such as groceries around 1870. At that time, it was a wonderful invention and remained the standard for about 100 years. In 1975, plastic bags were introduced as a great invention at that time – wood was expensive, oil was cheap and plastic was the technology of the future.
Unfortunately, 25 years later, it was discovered that over 4 billion plastic grocery bags per year do not get recycled, but rather end up in our rivers, oceans and mountains, causing harm to wildlife and add to pollution.
While many cities and counties in California have already banned plastic shopping bags, the governor of California recently approved a state wide ban on plastic grocery bags.
