Gadget, Journal, Lauren

Nine by six inches, baby!

So this is why we didn’t have groceries – I was waiting for my pretty bags to arrive!

A couple of weeks ago I was watching ‘Living with Ed’ (Ed Bagley Jr.) on HGTV.  He’s a tree-huggin’, energy-savin’, stuff-recyclin’ guy, and it makes his wife nuts.  I love the show.  This episode they were visiting celebrity homes and showing them little things they could do to make a difference.  They were at Cheryl Tiegs’ house and she had reusable grocery bag, but they didn’t show them in detail.  I looked for the on the internet, and found these instead.  In a fit of spending, I bought the whole pack.  You really need to go to envirosax.com to see all the collections.

They combine re-using with gadgety-ness!  On occasion I’ve walked to our local grocery store with a canvas bag, but these are much, much cooler.  They’re five cloth bags that each roll up to the size of a little egg roll, and they each hold as much as two plastic grocery bags.  I can keep one or two in my little purse at all times!  I’m so excited to get some food!  (I’ll run into a problem, though.  I actually do re-use the plastic bags by putting cat litter in them.  I’ll have to sneak some from the giant stash at school.)  I love you, Envirosax!!!

I could buy acres of food and stuff!!!

    All you environmental crazies mystify me. Give me the good old days when grocery bags were made from baby seals.

    What a great reason to not buy groceries!! We have a reusable bag, too, but we don’t use it very much. It’s because we manage ALL of our garbage with grocery bags. Is there an environmentally friendlier way to manage garbage without plastic bags???

    I suppose composting would take some of the garbage away…

    BTW: Cool bags Lauren! Let us know how they work out.
    (and I would keep them away from Lloyd … he might try to wear them)

    When sneaking CDC bags, please beware of the parking curbs.
