Reusable Shopping Bags!


Paper or Plastic? Neither

Purchase Reusable Bags and keep the bags in your vehicle.

Use them for groceries, shopping at the mall, the local convenience store, everywhere you shop.



If you have to choose, choose paper because at least it is biodegradable. You can reuse the  same paper bags the next time you go the store, repeat this until they need replaced. (Hint: double layer paper bags are more durable and less likely to tear) 

I do occasionally get paper bags at the grocery store because of pets.  
I use the paper bags as garbage bags for their litter droppings.


But the best option is to always use reusable canvas bags when shopping.
