Recycling Plastic Grocery Totebags


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

I have so many of these that I haven't bought the cloth grocery bags yet. Every time I shop, I put the same bags all into one bag and put the one bag in the back seat of my car. Then whenever I stop at a store, I grab a few. It makes all the difference to have them in plain sight.

(By the way, I wish Spark would add Green Tips or Recycling to their categories.)

    That's a great idea. I do it toop sometimes(when I remember to take them). One suggestion though. Please don't keep the ones that you get meat, and cold stuff bagged in. The meat can leak just ever so little, and the moisture from the cold items, can create a breeding ground for bacteria that can transfer to your fresh foods and possibly cause a food born illness, in you or a family member, especially with summertime being here.
