We have always recycled our plastic grocery bags, but when you count how many a family of only 3 uses (counting double bagging for cans, milk, etc) it is ridiculous. I felt guilty every time we went shopping. Then add in trips to Target....uuggghh. I could wrap my house in plastic bags from a month's worth of shopping.
So, over the weekend we bought as many 'green' bags as we thought we'd need for a large grocery shopping trip. I ran back to the store twice, yes twice, for things I kept forgetting on my Super Bowl party list. (I know, I know...I wasn't using my SmartShopper organizer obviously.) It felt good walking in with my trusty reusable bag. Oh and SCORE on the fact that our grocery store gives you a discount for each bag every time you use it. Yeah, it's just a small amount, but paying me to go green? Why, that's just too kind of them. It's the least I could do for our planet.
I'll be looking for more ways to help become more green. We've already switched a lot of our light bulbs to compact florescents, put in low flow shower heads, replaced 1 of 3 toilets to low flow ones and will be changing out the other two toilets later.
Alright, it's late and I'm super tired from our little get together we had tonight so the discount list may be a little short, but no worries, I'll be back with more. Oh and the food is at the bottom of the list, too....
