Go Green: Reusable Bags
This is the easiest tip- buy reusable bags for shopping. I have a few insulated ones for my cold groceries, which were very inexpensive. I also bought about 5 recycled material bags for groceries as well, at .99 each. I use these every time I go to the grocery store. I also bought a few larger bags from etsy seller niccocjm and I use those for trips to places like Target. I really like them and highly recommed the seller.
When I do get in a pinch and don't have my bags with me, I use paper whenever possible and put them with my weekly recycling. If I am at Target and can't get paper bags, I just reuse the plastic ones in my small garbage cans at home or you can take them to be recycled at many stores.
