February Just One Thing

February's Just One Thing is to use a reusable bag! By bringing your own bag, you can be part of reducing the use of 12 million barrels of oil that go into manufacturing plastic bags and the 10 billion paper bags that are used each year. Bringing your own bag also helps cut down on landfill waste, litter, and wildlife injuries. Just by bringing your own bag, you can help reduce climate change and make the world a better place for the future. Thank you!

Some ideas...
Many grocery and department stores are offering inexpensive reusable bags to make this simple for you. (I've purchased them at both Whole Foods and Target but have seen them at normal grocery stores and understand WalMart is offering them too.)

Knit a Bag!
Feeling ambitious? Make a bag from old bags!

Or go ultra simple. I love the idea of using old plastic bags and turning them inside out, labeling them "Reusable Bag", like this blogger!
