Bring your own reusable bags when you go shopping

Why should I do this?

The plastic bags used for shopping often end up in the ocean along with other plastic debris causing many problems for sea life. Paper bags are not much better as their production is also energy and water intensive.

How can I do this?

Bring along re-useable cloth bags. Often your local grocery store will supply them.
