Give New Meaning to Green Grocers with a Custom Printed Shopping Bag

06/05/2012 - 2:38pm

In the near future, you’ll need more than a list when you go to the store. Last week Los Angeles made history by becoming the largest city in the US to ban plastic bags in supermarkets.

It’s not unreasonable. Single use plastic bags are often unable to be recycled, meaning that 90-percent of recycled bags end up in landfills. The average American family goes through about 600 bags a year.

In Maryland’s Montogomery County, they’ve ruled that you can use plastic bags at check out – as long as you’re willing to pay an extra 5-cents per bag.

The Reusable Grocery Tote – A No Brainer Choice for Anyone who Shops

We often write about grocery totes for a number of reasons not least of which is keeping informed of local laws being passed in so many towns and cities banning the use of plastic bags by retail establishments (with pretty hefty monetary penalties for ignoring them). But we also write about them because we are truly devotees of using them. For anyone who has gone to the grocery store – and we know that’s virtually all of you reading this right now – there is truly no more efficient, painless way to cart home your groceries than a reusable grocery tote bag. Let me demonstrate something that happened to us this past weekend after a trip to our local supermarket.
