    I do my part. 🙂 We purchased several cloth bags at the supermarket, which we use for groceries, but I’ve also started taking them with me when I shop elsewhere, such as department stores, etc. Every little bit helps.

    Thanks, Amy. I own plenty of cloth bags, but almost never have them with me. It’s time to change that, husband Steve & I have just agreed.
    This is a case, though, where I look forward to the ban. It’ll make things inconvenient at first, but we’ll all adjust. I just hope they ban “string” bags made of plastic at the same time, because if those proliferate, they too would cause terrible problems in oceans. There’d be fewer of them, but they’re so strong, they’d be more lethal, I fear.

    Great reminder. I use reusable bags also. My kids now comment on people using plastic throw away bags.

    “Look mama they is naughty, them should take better care of the earf”…loudly enough for everyone to hear of course.

    Ahhh shoppin’ with kids!

    I too take my little cloth bag shopping with me and try to avoid the plastic as much as possible.

    Nasty! My mother called me the other day and asked, “which is better, paper or plastic?” Like a good environmentalist, I said, “neither!”
    Thanks for the video, it was a good one and hopefully people will see it and be a bit more aware.
