The average plastic bag is used for five minutes to carry your purchases home, yet these single use plastic bags can take up to 1000 years to break down. >:)

Plastic bags are one of the most recycled consumer items made. Who doesn't use them for hundreds of things around the house including trash bags. Take them out of the loop and now you'll need to manufacture more "retail" bags.

They are also recycled to make the multi-use shopping bags.

Multi-use shopping bags are not necessarily the answer, storing them in the trunk of your car breeds pretty nasty bacteria if they're not cleaned often.
