Bagging the Plastic
It's good news to hear all of the bans on plastic shopping bags, especially when those bans extend to corners of the world like Mumbai and China. We bought some reusable grocery bags to take on our weekly shopping trip, but they are a bit bulky and I find myself forgetting to dig a bag out of the back of the car for my other shopping.
I found one of these cool, reusable totes that actually folds up into a case which fits in my purse. Now, I have no excuses for bringing home more plastic bags even on a quick errand. I'm ready for any bag bans that come my way. And, no they aren't paying me to promote this. It's just a handy solution while we retrain ourselves to BYOB (bring your own bag).
Now, the rest of the country, including the cashier at Target who tried to charge me for my reusable bag as merchandise, needs to just catch up.
