Paper? Plastic? How about “none of the above”?

We all know it’s better to use reusable bags than to waste hundreds of plastic or paper bags every year. But when you’re in the checkout line and realize your reusable bags are out in the trunk, what are you going to do? It happens to all of us. You’ll have to go get your bags or carry your items yourself. If you do get disposable bags (and pay the $.05), make sure to recycle them.  Many stores offer recycling. Then next time, put “reusable bags” at the top of your store list to remind you.
