I Bring My Own Bags to the Store

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 74 People

    Keep One On Hand

    I carry a backpack like most women carry a purse.  And almost always in that pack is a reusable shopping bag.  The clerks at my normal shopping haunts have learned that Plaid always has her own bag!

    I Don't Like How Plastic Bags Are Free

    Every time I go to the store I bring my own bags. I keep a big bunch of canvas and nylon tote bags in my car. I got a bunch of them for free from my mom, who gets them for free from pharmaceutical companies. My dad gets some free from conferences. My best friend gave me a pretty...

    Go Green

    I love recycling. I believe in saving the rainforest, trees, animals, and so I bring my 100% recycled Whole Foods bag with me when I shop. I believe in making a difference in small ways...this just one of my many...... Go Green!!!

    I'm Improving At This

    When I bring the bags in to unload them, I have to remember to put them into the backseat of my car on my way out again.  Otherwise, I will forget. I'm getting better though, and I'll be much better when I get these during my next trip to Vegas: http://www.starz.bz...

    My Cloth Bags

     I have a random assortment, most of them handmade from fabric scraps or pillowcases I found at the thrift store.  We also buy the store's recycled kind, slowly collecting one from each store we can.  If a store has several colors, we also get one each of them...

    Well, a Bookbag

    I'm in college right now and some people laugh, but I think it's just easier to use an empty bookbag. It's eaier to carry to the busstop and then to my room and you don't have fifty bags tking space on the bus. During Sustainability Week one of my professors told us we should all...

    Making the Transition

    I have been doing this with more frequency now.  It felt a little awkward at first, but once that first time is done, it feels really good!  I tend to use the self-checkout lanes at the stores and I haven't had the chance to use them when I'm in a regular check-out land...

    Learning To Remember

    Its a great idea to use toters.   There's wayyy too much going to our garbage dumps.  BYOB (Bring your own bag) is the way to go. Thing is, I forget to bring them into the store and I remember that when I'm at the cash register.   At first I had a few in the trunk...
