While preparing for a Holiday event at the condo, I realized my population of plastic shopping bags had grown by astronomical proportions. I wondered if they had been breeding under the cabinet or if Santa’s Elves were stashing them their as a joke.
Denial kicked into high gear as I stuffed them into a larger plastic bag and pushed them back in the cabinet satisfied they were now “organized”. After dreaming about being smothered in plastic bags, I knew it was time for change. “Bagless or Burst”.
The first Green Challenge for Change for the year is not to take home more than 3 plastic bags (produce or grocery style bags) over the next 3 weeks. That means I need to quit those bags cold turkey. Join the challenge and let me know how you do.
I am relaxing tonight, fine tuning my plastic bag radar and getting ready to just say no! I look forward to sharing my experience and discussing the world of Plastic, Paper and Reusable bags. And don’t let me forget, I can always say “No Bag Please”.
