Maui County residents and visitors go through 50 million bags a year....50 MILLION!!! Thus, costing $150,000 a year to pick up plastic bags at the Central Maui Landfill in Puunene. As of January 11, 2011, there will be no more of this! Read more about the plastic bag ban on Maui in the Maui News. So to get ready for this, we've designed functional natural cotton bags! They're eco-friendly, cute, and necessary for 2011!
