Eco-Friendly Shopping Bags Part Two

In the last couple of weeks, I have received some strange looks from baggers of all ages at the local, popular supermarket when I present my canvas tote. Once I even got a frown! My co-worker takes numerous bags and does her entire weeks worth of shopping using canvas totes.

In addition, I have to watch closely, as at least one, maybe more items will get wrapped in plastic before it goes into the canvas bag. One such item was astringent, sealed and double sealed at the lid with (more) plastic--no danger of leaking there and second, was some ground turkey. The bagger commented raw meat! I replied, that plastic bag will outlive the total of our ages combined! No thank you, don't need it. Then he asked me if I wanted all six items I was purchasing in the same bag. Oh, we have a lot of educaten' to do. . .

For smaller items, the 9 x 6 inch enviro sax looks useful because it folds up into a tiny palm-sized 4 x 1.5 inch pack that one could put in the glove box or in one's purse.

Thanks Cara,

The new organic range will be available in the USA from the middle of September. The new Bamboo and Linen are truly amazing. The organic hemp will also be available again in Sept.
