Actually Use Those Reusable Bags

You’ve been here before. You are standing in the checkout line with a cart loaded with groceries, absentmindedly eyeing the magazines on display and wondering who actually believes that a half man half alligator lives in Florida, when suddenly you glance down at the reusable bags for sale at the end of the aisle. Your frustration flairs as you realize your 15-plus eco friendly bags are folded nicely and sitting in the utility room at home. Once again, protecting the environment goes on hold as you say yes to those convenient plastic bags because you and your reusable bags can never seem to be in the same place at the same time.

It’s time for a change. There are several things that may help you remember to include reusable bags along with your shopping list the next time you hit the grocery store.

First, you can leave them in your car at all times. Right after you bring home and stack your canned goods in the pantry, turn around and put your eco friendly bags back in your trunk. Then you’ll always have them with you when you go out.

Second, get a bunch of them. The more you have, the more likely you are to have one lying around when you actually need it.

Third, give your shopping bags the same treatment you do meetings at work. Program a reminder into your phone that tells you to bring your reusable bags with you when you schedule your shopping trips. You could include it on your grocery list so you won’t forget.

Fourth, purchase bags that you’re excited about toting your groceries around in. Planet Earth Bag lets you customize the size, color and design on your bag so that you can create something you want to be seen hanging off of your shoulder.

Make sure that your heart is not the only thing in the right place by using some of these tips to bring your reusable bags with you the next time you head to the grocery store.
