Paper or Plastic?

NEW!

Show Your Advocacy for Animals and Our Planet With Our Handsome Reusable Bags

Next time a cashier asks whether you want paper or plastic, consider giving the environmentally aware answer: Neither, thank you.

As our marine animal rescue specialist Peter Wallerstein says, plastic bags end up in waterways and kill thousands of marine mammals every year, because they mistake the floating bags for food.

Plastic bags in landfills slowly break down into smaller and smaller toxic particles that contaminate soil and water and are ingested by animals. Worldwide, more than a million plastic bags are discarded per minute! 

Even paper bags have their own set of environmental problems. Trees are used to make them, and their stacked weight translates into a lot of fuel in shipping.

And disposable shopping bags are not free. We all pay for them, because they cost retailers about $4 billion annually.

We’re now offering an alternative. Our quality reusable shopping bags are easy on the planet and the eye. Getting your reusable bag here will help support our rescue, rehabilitation, and advocacy work.
