STEPS TO MAKE THE CHANGE
WHY MAKE THIS CHANGE?
I love using my produce bags. If I forget them I just put everything in the trolly or in a different shopping bag. Even at the checkout the assistants don't roll their eyes like they used to. Sometimes if I forget my bags I also use the paper mushrooms bags. I haven't used the plastic produce bags for about 2 years now.
I switched a while ago now and I'm finally in the routine. At first I was worried that I would be paying more because the bags might be heavier, but I haven't noticed a difference in price. I'll keep using them.
I've been plastic bag free for years.I found it really easy to make the switch. Once I set it into my shopping routine, it's done. My favourite are the little canvas ones with the holes in them. They are really easy to wash and see whats in them.
