Eustis Grass Roots just posted about how silly it is that we still use plastic bags at the grocery store. Take a looksee.
There are jazillion reasons why reusable shopping bags are way more boss than plastic ones. Here are two of my favorites:
1. Grocery totes rule. Evidence:
From Food Fight!
2. Sea turtles are adorable. And if fewer plastic bags wind up in the ocean, it means that fewer sea turtles will munch on them, thinking that they're jellyfish.
I play this game where I see how long I can go without taking a plastic bag from any store. So, it's not the most thrilling game ever, but it helps me remember to bring my bags because I want to beat my own record (two and a half weeks, ahem). And it's more useful than Lego Star Wars or Scrabulous, so lay off.
