I have been getting better at remembering my resusable bags when grocery shopping, but now I miss having a stack of plastic bags around for dirty pull-ups, wet messes, deliveries etc.
So, when I forget my bags, it's ok, because then I get a new supply of some plastic bags to REUSE.
The latest development for me and resuable bags are these nylon bags that get scrunched up SO TINY in these little tiny bags. I bought a few of them at Claires, when my daughter got her ears pierced:
I doubt these bags are biodegradable, so when I finally do throw them away, it might not be GREEN. However, since I have started carrying these around in my bag, I have skipped on bags at Barnes and Noble, Gap, the drug store, green market etc. These are so small and convenient, it is really easy to be green for those small, everyday errands. And, often you can conceal your shopping from your husband! Always a bonus.
