something that always finds its way to the streets and oceans are plastic bags so I have started bringing around my own tote bags or backpacks. this is so I don't have to get a plastic bag or waste any bags. having my own bag helps reduce the amount of plastic bags I use which is now none thanks to my own bags. this has also helped me to not shop as much because it has to fit in my bag. so instead of going shopping and buying unnecessary things that will end up in the trash I just come back with the things I need and actually want. this is a picture of my baby brother carrying around one of my tote bags with the little trinkets we found while shopping .
