Have you noticed that more and more stores are charging plastic bags?
Some areas forbid plastic bags entirely.
Because we’re re-using our plastic bags for our kitchen trash, I do cough up the 20 cents every now and then. If I feel particularly cheap, I’ll let my grocery run free on the car floor as I drive home and then make hundreds of trips back and forth to get those free-range groceries locked up my kitchen.
Here are ways to carry groceries without using plastic bags:
- Make your own reusable bags with old t-shirts
- Use a laundry basket
- Use a box
- Grab a basket
- Use a backpack
- Keep food cool in a cooler
