Something easy we can all do

I have a canvas shopping bag that I use when I shop at the health food store. Make fun of me if you wish, but I think it is the wisest of ideas. I'm one of those people who would probably take my own mug to Starbucks to save a paper cup, but I can't ever seem to remember to bring it with me.

Recently, I've aquired 2 of these shopping bags. I paid .99 for one and one was free with my purchase at my health food store. Every time I use my bags there, they will donate .05 to Habitat for Humanity. Isn't that cool? Anyway, it is the most versatile bag ever. I stuffed our towels in in last week for swimming lessons and packed our lunch in it today. It's the perfect size and is very lightweight, and you can't believe how many items from the store I can get in it. I love it. I've been trying to remember to put it in my car when it's empty...that way I always have it with me. Duh.

It's such a simple thing that we all can do to reduce, reuse, and recycle. And even if you don't have one of these savvy bags, you can still take your own bags to the grocery store, or your own cup to Starbucks. It's the small things, people!
