From Disposable to Sustainable

I’m Switching to Reusables

Meet Tiger, our cute, funny, green-living guest blogger. Join him and his parents as they navigate toddlerhood while being sustainable-living minded.

Hi, my name is Tiger.

I’m 1.5 years old, I live with my mom Maria and dad Jacob in a sunny place called California. I have been trying to go green for a while. I don’t want to throw my things away, I want to keep them, like forever. (1)

A lot of days ago, I put my plastic snack bag in my mouth and my mom got scared, said it wasn’t good for me. (2)

After that, she got me a snack bag that I can use every day. It’s got animals on it. It’s been many days and I still have the same bag and today when I put my new bag in my mouth my mom just smiled. It’s working!

I really like my new snack bag, I see the animals on the outside and know it’s mine. And I can put so many things in it, and it don’t break or taste funny. When I ate all of my snack today, I put my toy cars in the bag. I tried to do that with my old snack bags, but they always broke. (3) Now I can carry around my snacks, toys and sticks, all day. My mom has a bag like mine. Hers is black. Mine is nicer.

I am happy I get to use this bag a lot of times. When I finished my snacks in the old bags, mom would throw the invisible bags away. I’ve used a lot of invisible bags, where are they now? (4)

Did you know:

  1. Only 1% of plastic bags are returned for recycling. That means that the average family only recycles 15 (out of 1500) bags a year; the rest ends up in landfills as litter.
  2. 100,000 marine animals are killed by plastic bags annually
  3. Americans use 100 billion plastic bags a year, which require 12 million barrels of oil to manufacture.
  4. It takes 500 (or more) years for a plastic bag to degrade in a landfill. Unfortunately the bags don’t break down completely but instead photo-degrade, becoming microplastics that absorb toxins and continue to pollute the environment
