Products That Will Lower Your Carbon Footprint

It finally seems like Australia might be making some headway in its attempts to #BanTheBag. Clean Up Australia has more than 70,000 signatures on its petition to ban single-use non-biodegradable plastic bags, which the average Aussie uses for just 12 minutes, before it becomes litter for the next 1,000 years.

Scroll for the nine investments that will save the planet, and your pocket.
