I have noticed lately that I have not been as vigilant in bringing my cloth bags to the grocery store. I was doing really well throughout the winter and sprint but for some reason I don’t seem to remember them anymore. Part of the problem is that I don’t know where they are. I am sure Deb has put them away never to be found again.
I don’t think it is just us though with regard to forgetting the cloth bags. At Save-On today I noticed that only 1 person I saw had a cloth bag. I am not sure what is happening with the cloth bag movement. Perhaps economic concerns have supplanted the green bandwagon. Or maybe people don’t really see the benefit of using cloth bags versus the energy and thought required to bring them to the store.
I think until grocery stores charge an exorbitant amount for bags we will continue to use plastic. It is easier, cleaner and many people re-use those bags.
Any thoughts? Did you use cloth bags? Are you still using them or do you forget them like me?
