Eco-Challenge Part 8: Feed the Bag Monster... NOT!

This is another Go to Zero Challenge.

In the next few weeks can you get down to using zero plastic grocery bags?

Probably the best way to do that is to acquire canvas bags that can be reused for years.  Some grocery stores even give you a mini-rebate for each bag you bring and use. The bags don't take up much space when empty. They can be folded into each other and kept in the closet.

Don't forget to take those reusable bags to the hardware store and the department store as well.

The bag monster is a light-hearted way to draw attention to the prevalence of single use plastic grocery bags.

Here's a link to a video clip:
