Reusable Grocery Tote Bag
With the trends leaning more and more to going green, an easy place to start is to use a reusable grocery tote bag when you shop. One of the worst things you can do to the environment is to perpetuate and continue to use plastic grocery bags. Not only do the bags stay in our landfills for hundreds of years, but if thrown into the wrong place, the openings can harm an animal by strangling it. If you choose to shop with reusable bags, you need to find the right one. I fell into the trap of buying a reusable bag from the discount store because it was only .50. Well, after the seams came apart on my 3rd shopping trip, I felt even at .50, I was ripped off! In order to make changes in your habits that are more eco-friendly, it needs to be worth your while or you won’t continue with your new habits. The best thing to do is find a well-made reusable bag that is roomy enough to accommodate your needs. This can be a bit trickier that you may think!

Alternatives To Using Plastic Bags
If we are going to go green, we must find alternatives to using plastic bags. Lisa Foster, the founder of SnapSac, has announced an exciting and limited edition line of reusable bags for the fall, called the Sarika Collection. With the bold Paprika accent color, these new SnapSac’s ($4.99 each) will be available online at www.snapsac.com this month! These totes are easily folded and stored and the small pocket can be used for coupons or other small items. I really love that the SnapSac totes fold flat and can fit nicely in the trunk of the car so they are readily available when you need them. I also use my SnapSac’s when I donate clothes or am bringing a meal to a neighbor. I have used them to go to the lake and they are strong enough to hold all the supplies we need to have a full day in the water. Since receiving the new Sarika SnapSac bags, I have put them through the wringer and they have stood up to the test and I am just glad to have finally found a product I have faith in that won’t burst open and spill my groceries all over the floor!
