14,000 people are homeless in metro Atlanta.
100 billion plastic bags are thrown away each year by Americans.
Only 10% of plastic bags in the United States are recycled.
The plastic bags we use every day have a damaging effect on the environment, hurt plants, animals and people.
Many homeless people because of unsafe, cold and uncomfortable environments do not get quality sleep at night.
A lack of good sleep often can lead to an increase in the problems many homeless people already suffer from such as mental illness, drug abuse, physical problems and illness and violence.
