Zippy Tips

Snip those Plastic Bag Handles!

It’s Zippy Tip Tuesday!

I switched to reusable grocery bags years ago.

All it took was for me to see a video of a bird who had gotten a plastic bag handle stuck around its neck at a landfill, and I quit cold turkey.

Well, not exactly cold turkey.  A couple of months went by when I would forget and leave the darned things at home.  Then I thought I would be smart and store them in my car, but I’d forget them in there too!  Finally, I got the hang of it, and the process of carrying them into the store became second nature.

But I know many of us use the plastic bags to hold garbage, line wastebaskets, clean out the kitty litter box etc.

 If that is the case, I think it is a good idea to give the handles a snip.  That way, our precious wildlife creatures stand a better chance of not getting into harm’s way.  The same thing goes for those little plastic rings that hold six packs of beverages.  Just give each ring a snip, and they’ll be safer in the landfills.

Thank you.

I thank you, and all the little chickies and duckies and birdies out there thank you too!
