No More Plastic!!June 5, 2008
We did a week’s worth of shopping today and were able to fit it all into 4 bags, except for the milk and juice bottles; they are easier to carry without a bag anyway. And I found the bags easier to carry because the handles are long enough to go over my shoulder.The checkout clerk was not too happy with me though. It seems that the reusable bags are harder to pack. Too bad 🙂 I think that she will get over it.
I never did count how many plastic bags I used to use, but I would estimate 12- 15 every week. So in a month’s time I may save 53 plastic bags from the dump! Yea! I’m going to stick the bags back in the van so that I won’t forget them… theoretically.
Now, what to do about all of those plastic bottles…
