Seriously, how cool are these bags?
I have been in the market for some reusable bags to replace the plastic bags that most stores use. I have been trying to knit, scrounge, and find as many bags as I can before I purchase any. I’ve knitted a few of these silk sari hobos. They are gorgeous. I’m tempted to pick up a few ecobags. I love the produce bags. How cool are they? I have just recently become aware of how much plastic I use in the produce section. Ack!
When I was looking for bags, I came across these Basura Bags that are made by women in the Philippines out of foil juice boxes. Each one is unique. I think I might be trading in my Coach bags…
My husband thinks that I may be going a little off of the deep end, but I’ve told him many times that it is not like he got a bait-and-switch out of this deal. He met a vegetarian who wore Birks. He met a girl who wasn’t in the mainstream. There weren’t any other electric guitar playing, skateboarding, computer and math major, punk girls walking around campus. 😉
If you use cloth bags at the grocery store, please comment and let me know what has worked for you! I’m really interested to see what most people do and whether or not the stores make an issue of it. I know that Wild Oats gives you a nickel for each cloth bag you use, but I’m guessing that the mainstream stores aren’t like that.
