Bring your shopping bags

Paper or plastic? Reasonable people disagree about which of these is better for the environment. Is it worse to consume trees or to contribute to the Great Pacific Garbage Patch?

Why not avoid the debate altogether and bring your own bags with you when you shop? Keep a couple of cloth sacks in your car (or better yet in your bike’s panniers!) so you won’t ever again have to answer the dreaded question.

Many grocery stores sell bags you can reuse. For purpose-designed sacks, you can buy online at Reusable Bags. (Note, we have no affiliation with Reusable Bags. We just think it’s a good idea!)
