Cotton Grocery Bags – NOT

This is one of the easiest zero waste swaps. Keep them in your car, and just get in the habit of using them.


Be mindful that cotton bags are NOT environmental. Look for hemp or some other low-impact textile material, even if it’s recycled plastic.

And as a reminder…

Avoid Grocery Store Plastic Produce Bags, Too!

It’s not always possible, but one can usually get most items home and into their spots without needing a separate bag. Why did we ever need them?

What are YOUR grocery tips? Are there any grocery stores that are helping to reduce waste, especially plastic waste?
