I have always hated the plastic bags that retail has been forcing us to use for most of our purchases. I’m so glad that there is such a push for folks to purchase the reusable cloth bags. I really like it when you can find one that is made of recycled items. Just these small things will make a big difference in the whole scheme of things.
I understand that some places are making these plastic bags against the law for stores to use and some places have even started folks 5 cents per bag right at the cash register. What a hassle, but I really think that it is a step in the right direction. It isn’t easy being green, as Kermit The Frog was so well known for singing about.
