    1. 1. presented by Guyenterprise
    2. 2. To get consumers to minimize the use of plastic bags and other single-use reusable containers by replacing these with nonreusable products.
    3. 3.       At least 10% of waste generated in Region 4 NDCs comprises plastic bags and other plastic containers. Plastics are devastating to the environment because they photodegrade breaking down into smaller, more toxic petropolymers which contaminate soils and waterways. It costs more to recycle a plastic bag than to produce a new one. Globally, only 1% of plastic bags are recycled. Plastics are dumped in the ocean, drains, other waterways. One reusable bag can save the use of 6 plastic bags a week or 288 bags a year. A reusable polypropylene bag only needs to be reused 11 times to match the carbon footprint of 1 plastic bag.
    4. 4.     Distribute free of charge high quality bags with an appealing design. Raise the level of awareness and understanding of the environmental and economic impacts of reusable bags. Positively influence attitudes about using a reusable bag, and negatively influence attitudes about using plastic bags. Also target retail businesses who routinely provide their customers with plastic bags and who may prohibit reusable shopping bags on their premises.
    5. 5.   Shoppers to bring their reusable bag instead of using plastic bags. Retailers to encourage the use of re-usable bags and discourage the use of plastic bags.
    6. 6.    Your reusable bag differentiates you from those who do not care about the environment. Using the bag encourages other shoppers to do so and increases awareness of the plastic bag problem. When you use the bag, you should feel good about yourself, instead of feeling guilty for using plastic bags which harm the environment.
    7. 7.        Use ONE LESS plastic bag every time you shop. Use reusable bags instead of plastic bags. Take your reusable bag with you and use it as much as you can. If you have to take a plastic bag, reuse it as much as you can before dumping Plastic bags/ bottles/ containers may be convenient but cause long term harm to the environment. Carrying a reusable bag is easy and beneficial to you, your family and the environment. There are economic benefits to replacing plastic bags with more long-lasting alternatives.
    8. 8.       Use your reusable bag. Talk about its benefits. Encourage your audience to try this. Remind your audience to use their bags especially on Saturdays. Supermarket sweeps to see who is using reusable bag and to give out prizes. Call-in shows around environmental issues with the bags as prizes. Interviews with bag users to talk about why they reuse. Talk about other ways to reduce the use of plastics e.g. buy larger rather than single serve portions to cut down on packaging.
