There's an empty lot next to the grocery store that I frequent . . . and it's peppered with plastic bags. Bags that escaped the shopping carts, bags that have been discarded. It makes me sad. Now, we hear on the news that some stores are considering NOT providing plastic bags, charging extra for them, or giving a discount for not using them. And I remembered this colorful alternative: Baggu.
Baggu bags are made from rip-stop nylon with handles wide enough to wear over your shoulder without them cutting into your skin. They come in several colors and several sizes (which I love—one Baggu vs. 4 plastic bags? Baggu wins). Go visit, click here.
