Bag That Fits In Your Purse

Greenraising-Bags-P2C1.aspx.jpg I have good intentions of bringing my own shopping bag. I have made it a habit to bring them grocery shopping most of the time, but I have to admit that I usually forget when I am heading out to buy anything else.  My errands are simply not always planned but get built into and around carpooling, naps an unexpected free moments. As a result,  I have found myself still accumulating plastic bags, even this month when I have been trying so hard not to. 

Therefore,  I am very excited about this collapsable bag I heard about that you can keep in your purse, glove compartment or pocket. Even if I bought more than what it could hold and used just one less bag, that would be better. What if we all did? 

One place to find these was given to me by a commenter (they also sell SIGG bottles). It is called Greenraising  http://www.greenraising.com and is a fundraising organization you can set up for your school, church or other non-profit organization that sells all sorts of environmentally friendly products. They have lots of other fun bags too, including ones made from juice boxes. Time to contact the PTO!

If your PTO uses this fundraiser, let me know. My kids are all out of the PTO stage...

I just heard that Target in Delafield sells these bags. Tori from Hartland Market said that lots of people have been coming in with them. I'll give you all an update if I can find them.

I bought the Target bag today and I love it. I got a larger one that has a bottom and folds up flat and snaps shut for a buck something. You could keep it in your purse or car or what not. They also have a smaller one for 99c (can anyone get out of Target with so few items?!). Now I'll have no excuses not to have a bag when I make those quick stops on the way home from work or other errands.
