It’s not easy being green…

when you’re highly forgetful.

So, I felt so green while purchasing the reusable shopping bags at Kroger. I had really been feeling wasteful getting plastic bags each visit- even though we reuse a good portion of those. A few weeks back, Kroger had their bags on sale, so I decided to get a few. They are great! They hold a lot of groceries and they have insulated ones for cold/frozen foods. I’ve been good about bringing the bags with me on grocery trips until the other day. I was halfway through shopping with both kids, when I realized I didn’t have my bags. I felt like such a ditz.

I guess 3 out of 4 times using them this month isn’t bad.

I am really glad that places are moving to reusable bags. Earlier this month, IKEA moved away from plastic/paper bags altogether. Only reusable bags are offered in their stores. You can purchase one of their bags for $.59 or don’t use a bag at all. I think that is so cool and a big move for them.

Loving the reusable idea, just hope my memory will kick into gear when it comes time to head to the store!

  1. Sams Club has been bagless for as long as I can remember. Figured that deserved a mention 🙂

    So what’s your/our next ‘green’ project going to be?

    Ooooo… good point. I didn’t think of Sam’s Club.
    I really want to recycle, but it’s so difficult here.
