How much energy does it take to produce those reuseable shopping bags anyway
If you forget your reuseable shopping bag at home, do you have to buy another reuseable shopping bag
Can you use a bag from home (an old purse for example) as a reuseable shopping bag or do you have to purchase a special bag to be a reuseable shopping bag
Perhaps the biggest sin of all, do you buy garbage bags and put them in the plastic shopping bags and then when you get home throw away the plastic shopping bag into the garbage bag
Now I'm just giving myself a headache
Last year I figured out that most of my customers didn't even what a bag with their purchase. I did the math and if 50 customers turn down bags (and I have easily that many turn down bags every time I work) then that saves 2 boxes of bags a month. At the end of the year that saves enough bags to manufacture approximately one artificial Christmas Tree -not to mention the money it saves my boss in bags!
