Plastic Bags in the News

USA Today this morning has a front page story called Tide turns against use of plastic bags. And, no, Alabama friends and fans, it’s not about the Crimson Tide.

    Here’s another cool alternative to paper and plastic bags – BaggyShirts are multi-purpose reusable bags made from recycled clothing! They are made from recycled men’s shirts, and the folks who make them work from their homes and are paid an above-average wage for their industry. Very cool….very green…..check them out at!

    I have invented a recycling receptical, called the Bag Man. system. This name is short for Bag Management system , which is exactlly what it does. I invented this Bag Management system because i trully believe that a major part of the solution to the problem of plastic bags is developing a reasonable recycling method. Over one trillion plastic bags are produced each year in the United States, and lest than 5% are recycled. Why? Anyone can ask, WHAT DO YOU DO WITH YOUR PLASTIC BAGS? And the answers will be the same all over the world. WE put our bags,in a drawer, or a cabinet, or under the sink, or maybe we throw them in the trash, where they can in up in our landfills. There needs to be a reasonable alternative, so we are encouraged to recycle more plastic bags. And i think that the BAG MAN SYSTEM IS THE WAY>
