I hope your week is off to a good start. Don't forget it's Earth Day! Let's do something good for the planet. Like remember to bring bags and cloth totes when you go grocery shopping. In fact you should bring bags to each and every store you go to!
I went to Target the other day. It always seems a bit weird when I whip out a plastic bag or cloth tote from my purse. I can't help but feel people in line staring at me. Look at this strange lady - with the German accent. What a weirdo!
Maybe some day it will be the other day around. I hope that some day soon people will look at the person who forgot to bring a bag...Really Dude? How could you forget? Didn't you know you were going to buy something when you entered the store?
The landfills are running over with plastic bags and other trash that will not go away for millions of years. Seriously,who is the weirdo?
Did you know that they charge money for grocery bags in Germany? If you forget to bring a bag it will cost you a pretty penny. In the US it's the other way around.
Did you know that Target stores pay you 5cents per bag that you bring? I think that is very nice of Target. If overflowing landfills don't convince you maybe putting some coin in your wallet will work?
Happy Earthday, America!
