I love using my reusable bags when I go shopping. I actually have quite the collection. Big ones, small ones. Plan ones, colorful ones. Ones from H-E-B, from Target, from Half-Price Books.
Unfortunately sometimes I forget and have to use the plastic ones. So to help me feel less guilty for using them I try to bring the plastic bags up to H-E-B and drop them in the plastic bag recycling bin. On April 22, Earth Day, from 3 – 7 pm if you bring at least 5 plastic bags up to H-E-B you will receive a FREE special Earth Day reusable shopping bag. FREE guys, FREE! I know it is just a bag but I have plastic grocery bags that I need to recycle anyways so why not take advantage and get a bag that I can use over and over again, for free. Hopefully I can do better at bringing my bags when I shop-to help our environment. Happy Earth Day!
