The final frontier in the greening of my grocery shopping are those plastic produce bags. I've been using my Envirosax for months, happily rolling and unrolling them at grocery and general goods stores.
It's hard to buy green beans without a bag of some sort. And, even for larger items, I have trouble keeping other people from adding plastic to my bag. Case in point: When I go to Fresh Market and put a head of cabbage in my cart, the checkout folks consistently grab a plastic bag to put around it. Then comes the awkward, "Oh, thanks, but I don't want that plastic bag," conversation.
Today, at shelterrific I found the answer to my problem: handmade reusable bags from amkdesigns, pictured above. I haven't ordered these yet, but they look sturdy enough. They're $12 for a pack of six bags, which seems reasonable enough.
