After a trip to the grocery store...most things fit in my totes!
For years we have recycled our aluminum cans. Bob loads them up every once in a while, along with aluminum from his jobs, heads for Kroots and gets himself a little pocket money.
We save glass, metal & plastic containers that Bob totes to the bins in the Kroger parking lot...more often than you would think! (Our plastic use has increased tremendously in the recent months due to "chocky milk" consumption around here by our little munchkins!)
And for years I've saved the plastic shopping bags & recycled them at Jay C's. (They always know when I've been there as I fill up their barrel. :-)
So when I saw an online shopping link for "BHappy Bags" on Angie's blog, I had to check it out. I now am the proud owner of 2 very pretty bags that will hold a ton of groceries, along with a couple of cheapies I picked up at our local store. I was pleasantly surprised the first time I used them as they were quite easy to carry...& I didn't have all of those plastic bags to get rid of! My only problem is trying to remember to take them in with me! Several times I've gotten quite disgusted with my forgetful self when I get to the check out line & realize my Happy Bags are in the car.
Oh, I'm a long way from being a flag waving Green Earth person...but I figure that my little effort will help in helping our dump not to fill up quite so fast. I'm definitely not a tree hugger...but I am a lover of nature & beauty. I just wish I had started carrying my Happy Bags years ago!
