reusable grocery bagsPosted: August 24, 2016
I use reusable grocery bags out of a concern for the environment and to reduce waste. But I recently discovered another reason to use them: they are more practical and easier to handle.
I was in the grocery store the other day, and I was apparently preoccupied as I had picked up a number of items before I realized that I had forgotten my bag. Terry wasn’t with me and I didn’t want to abandon my cart to go out to my car to get a reusable bag. So the bagger used the normal plastic bags. What would have easily fit into one reusable bag took three plastic bags. When I got home I put the groceries into a reusable bag before bringing them into the house.
That ought to remind me to grab a reusable bag before going into the supermarket.
