Confessing My Eco-Sins: Reusable Shopping Bags

| 4/14/2009 1:31:22 PM

I have a confession to make.

I don't always take reusable bags to the store.

Last weekend, I ran into one of my friends at the local grocery store. We chatted for a bit, and then went about our business. I ran into him again as I was checking out. At this local grocery store, you bag your own groceries. As I was filling up paper bags with my purchases, my friend walked by me pushing a cartful of groceries bagged in reusable shopping bags. I sheepishly looked down.


I have no excuse for not using my many tote bags—I swear I own about 15 of them. I take one to work with me every day; I use one to store items that I donate to charity each month. The rest hang out in my closet. I can easily solve this problem by tossing my 13 other bags into my car's trunk.
