this is something i have thought about for awhile. i have always hated those plastic grocery bags that i seem to accumulate by the hundreds. it's hard for me to use the paper bags as i live on the second floor and try to limit my grocery shopping to only a couple times a month. i could do it i suppose- but then it's still killing trees to make the bags- even if they are partially recycled. i am currently looking at reusing the plastic ones at my local grocery store. they have a program now where you get a coupon or money off or something if you reuse your bags. not a bad idea really. i thought reusable bags were a good idea too- at least for those in between bread and milk trips to the store- so i checked out reusablebags.com. they have many different products and i thought that the site was neat. they have bags of different designs and different price ranges depending on what folks are looking at. there are other websites who also sell reusable bags- but really a bookbag or those tote bags i always got at the 100 seminars or so i attended for work would probably work also. i know i have a couple of them around the house. check out your local grocery store to see if they have reusable bag incentives!
