Reusable Grocery Bags and other Green Things

When I realized how many plastic bags I get during one shopping trip, I became obsessed with finding canvas grocery bags. The store I shop at doesn't offer paper bags, which I could more easily recycle. I do recycle plastic, glass, aluminum, and paper.

I already stopped buying bottled water and started using Nalgene bottles. I am excited for the new BPA free ones to come out.

I am planning a trip to a local farm to pick strawberries, blackberries, and veggies. And after finally finding information about the local farmers market, I am excited to check that out.

The Clorox Green Works cleaning products that I recently started using not only smell much more pleasant than other cleaning products, but they clean much better then some of the things I used to use.

I am not quite ready to completely jump into completely being green, but I feel like there are smaller steps I can take to get there. : )

  1. Every baby step is really a big thing! Good for you! Even doing little things here and there can make a big impact. I've been to u-pick farms before, and they are so much fun. I hope you have fun too!

  2. YEAH CHRISTA!! Our family trys it's best to be green too! We have a few of those reuseable grocery bags, but we always forget them :( So..when we do get plastic bags, we find as many uses for them as possible! You'd be amazed at what they do!! I LOVE u-pick farms too! When I visit my grandparents in Louisville, KY we drive over to Indiana and go to Huber's! It's my fave! My grandparents here in TX (near San Antonio) run their own farm/ranch and have a 1 acre garden ALWAYS filled with yummies!! Have fun darlin' !!
