We here at HuffPost Green love our reusable bags. Not only does eliminating the use of six plastic bags a week save 288 bags a year, but also if one adopts the habit of reusing their trusted and fashionable non-plastic bag it can average to 20,000 plastic bags saved in a lifetime.

380 billion plastic bags are used in the United States annually. Globally, 500 billion plastic bags are consumed each year. Plastic bags are estimated to require 500 years to degrade and in a week's worth of trips to the grocery store, the average family collects 60 plastic bags.
