Next time you are at the grocery store (or any other store for that matter) why not bring your own bag. We’ve all seen the green fabric bags that some grocery stores sell for you to tote your goodies home in but how many of us really use them? I had two friends this week tell me that they brought (and/or bought) their own bags to the grocery store. I guess I’ve been rubbing off on some people…but I need to try this one myself.
So what difference will it make? There are some really neat websites out there that go futher into the debate over paper-vs-plastic and which one is better for the environment however, both choices use natural resources that are intended to be used once and then disposed of. While many of us have reuse options for these bags (cleaning the kitty litter box, carrying our lunch to work, bathroom trash can liners, etc) I would have to say that most of us have more bags than we have uses.
