Going Green

We have all heard the term "Going Green" or "Green Living". There are people that make every effort to be as Green as possible and there are those who don't care at all or feel they can't go green because they cant afford it. But our pockets don't need to be deep, and whether were are Hunter Green or Sage Green, we all can make small changes that can go a long way.

And this week, it's Paper vs. Plastic? Actually it's neither. We have all seen the reusable bags that the grocery stores are now carrying. They only cost $1.00 and are a better option than paper or plastic.

We use 92 billion plastic bags and 5 billion paper bags a year. Though these two products are 100% Recyclable and often made from Recycled products, majority of them end up in landfills. Besides that, the amount of fossil fuels and energy used to make these products are extreme.

So, I encourage you to buy reusable cloth bags and make them your only bagging choice.
