Green Anything Bags

Recently, Ted and I bought canvas bags from Fred Meyer. At first we were disappointed that they were out of the large bags. However, four small ones are plenty for even our largest grocery days. Plus, if you use them at Fred Meyer, and a few other grocery stores, they will even give you a discount that will eventually pay for cost of the bags. The small ones cost 89 cents.
We have even expanded to using them each time we go to any store, not just the grocery store. It has been great not collecting ten plastic bags every time we took a trip to the store.
The other thing we have done with our large plastic bag collection is downsized it by taking 2/3 our stock to the recycling bin at Wal-Mart (I know Safeway does it too). Ted and I also noticed that Glad is starting to make kitchen garbage bags that are made from 65% recycled plastic.
