5. Forgive yourself of those past eco-sins. The past is the past, let go and move on. Now better equipped with both knowledge and tools, you should never falter again. Plus check out this earlier post to learn how it pays to bring your bags too.
6. Be patient with the cashiers as they are programmed for plastic. Yes, they will try and “push” a plastic bag on you for the ice cream or rotisserie chicken, but be strong and just say no.
7. Intervene and help others who are still stranded alongside of the eco-road. Carry an extra bag or two and offer one up in the checkout line or to a family or friend in need. With your bags in hand and organizers like The Tote Buddy, you can be a Green Samaritan every time you shop.
The Tote Buddy was kind enough to send me one to try out. Before all my bags lay in a messy pile like this either on my kitchen chair or on the floor of the passenger side, but now all six thick canvas bags fit nicely and neatly. I can hang on the chair or on the backdoor knob and it fits great in between the car seats. It’s easy to take in the store and pull out just what you need as there have been times when I had too many bags or not enough. It’s great and I love it!
So for your chance to win your own Tote Buddy or the other giveaways from One Bag at a Time and Bagnesia from the earlier posts, leave a comment or send me a tweet @GreenSamaritan to include this link http://ow.ly/13r8v .
I’ll select the winners this Saturday, February 6th (US residents only).
