Green Bags

Anonymous

Purchase a "Green Bag" at your local grocery store and keep it in your car so anytime you go shopping, anywhere, not just groceries, you can reduce the amount of plastice that is used. I bought 4 from Target, because they're the cutest ones I have seen. The fold up and even have pockets. They even fit in my purse.

Getting four of them is probably the best tip. I have two. One is in the bag I take to work, so (in theory), it's handy. The other one is at home ... not the best place for it. If I had four, I could keep one or two in the car, have one in my bag, one at the office ... and have all my bases covered.
