I did it!
Thanks to my community of Mamas, my grocery cart is now ‘greener’!
I always brought my own grocery bags to pack my groceries in after paying at the cashier’s – but I used those thin plastic bags when segregating and putting produce and bulk foods in my cart. I knew it wasn’t exactly ‘green’ but I rationalized that I would recycle them anyway. This year, with the help of my readers, I was motivated and finally bought my reusable and earth-friendly muslin and mesh bags for my bulk and produce foods.
I have to tell you though – I was the only one in my health food store with reusable produce and bulk foods bags. Everyone else around me was still using those thin plastic bags. They were all looking at my muslin and mesh bags with wonder in their eyes. Maybe I will, in turn, inspire them to stop using even more plastic too.
Thank you for motivating me to be a better person and HAPPY EARTH DAY!!!
