Last week I bought my very first reusable shopping bag.
I was at one of those darn European stores who hold their plastic bags hostage for money. It's our closest (and more importantly, our cheapest) grocery store, so after toying with the idea at each encumbered visit, I figured I'd bite the bullet, make like Nike, and just do it. At least it was one of those jumbo ones so I can break my back trying to carry in 4 jugs of milk into the house at the same time.
I'm already being tempted by the siren of fabulous reusable bags I hear calling my name...you can find some fun ones here and here. (But let's be honest...heaven knows I'll probably choke before I spend more than a buck or two on a grocery bag. *sigh*)
This morning, I spent a good chunk of the morning looking into our local recycling program. They have curbside pick-up here and even give you the oh-so-attractive blue bins shown below. yay! for not having to go and drop it off yourself.
All this eco-friendly time-suckage has made me wonder if I haven't turned a pale shade of lime green *gasp*
Do not fear, dedicated reader, I still have a looong way before you find me in birkenstocks, eating granola, and hugging trees.
