UGE Earth Week 2012 - Day 3 (No Plastic Bag Day)
It's great to hear how easily the office is abiding by Earth Week plans!
Yesterday, when employees went out for coffee, they took their travel mugs to the local coffee shop - honoring yesterday's "No Disposable Coffee Cup" stance. This was an excellent follow-up to over 1/2 the office signing Monday's UGE Sustainability Pledge!
Today our office is going a whole day without bringing any plastic bags into the office. We conveniently placed a bunch of reusable shopping bags right by the front door. So, we're hoping that people will grab one when they go out for shopping or lunch during the day and tell the cashier at the shop, "No bag, please!"
Today's Fact: Did you know that if everyone in the United States tied their annual consumption of plastic bags together in a giant chain, the chain would reach around the Earth's equator 776 times?
We hope you join us today to say no to plastic bags and adopt this practice throughout the year!
