When I was walking the streets in White Rock, BC mid-January I was surprised to find 2 plastic bags decomposing in the tree branches above our heads along a commercial street sidewalk. Yuck.
We recently picked up these plastic (ugh!) totes that we are using to put our produce in at the store, avoiding those small plastic produce bags. So now we can avoid the use of even more plastic bags on a weekly basis. And it looks quaint, to boot!!
Here's a way to create your own cloth bags to replace plastic. Free patterns.
