Reusable Grocery Bags
I recently saw a gal with a t-shirt on that said, using a very cute play on words, Plastic Bags Blow. As well as giving me a good laugh, it gave me a topic for a blog post.
As I've mentioned before, I enjoy collecting bags. Using them to carry my grocery shopping home is one of the main uses they get. They are kept in the van, ready to go in whenever I go shopping. The baggers are always willing to load the groceries into my bags (even though I'm sure it's not quite as easy as using the plastic ones). Then my groceries are packed in bags that will not tear and I do not end up with piles of plastic bags that I can not use.
If you think you might like to try using your own reusable bags, let me encourage you to do so. It's a small thing to do that can help cut down on the trash in landfills or blowing around on the side of the road. Many grocery stores offer cloth bags for sale, especially health food stores. If you can't find them locally, you can purchase them online from reusablebags.com.
