Everyday small changes can bring about BIG results. Take for instance if you used inexpensive mess bags for your produce instead the plastic bags you get at the grocery store. Assuming that you purchase 5 types of produce a week, that is 5 bags x 52 weeks = 260 plastic bags that will NOT end up in landfill! Now multiple that by each person or family in Canada! Small changes bringing about BIG results!
- These mess bags are light weight so don't add weight or increase the cost of your produce.
- They are see through so cashier can see the produce and UPC codes.
- They are washable since they are laundry bags. You can use them to wash and store your produce in.
- They can be purchased inexpensively at a dollar store - 2 for $1.00.
But it doesn't stop there. Every time I use these bags someone in line or the cashier comments on what a great idea that is, thinks about doing the same thing, and the impact is multiplied!
So the question now is What are you waiting for? and How many friends and family are you going to share this idea with, so together we can make small changes that have BIG results?
Yep, just me Cathy thinking out loud about being green.
