Here we are one month in using cloth bags. How did I do?
Well in the beginning I used the bags for my groceries. However I forgot to bring them into the mall. I would say I did better than I use to. I'm still working on not taking any plastic bags from merchants. I will tell you it is hard. Looking them in the face and say "I will not need your plastic bag" is intimidating. It is much easier at the grocery stores. Why it that?
I think the malls merchants should be better at accepting "I have my own bag". Instead I got strange looks and one store said you can put this bag in yours. So, I will be bold in my task this month and let you know next month how it went. How did you do?
