Too much waste

I’ve been wanting to write this letter for a while. Everytime I shop at a grocery store and see how few people bring their own bags and how much plastic is being wasted on bagging groceries, many of those bags tear to shreds and go to garbage the moment after their contents get unloaded.

It’s really easy to develop a habit of bringing reusable fabric bags when going shopping. I always keep a few in the car and by the door at home, to grab on my way out. There is so much plastic waste out there these days, the very least we all can do is not to add more when it can be avoided.
