Trying to Do Good

I try to do good. It goes with my philosophy of not lying and the whole teaching thing. Basically, I want to help make the world a little better.

Until now I have resisted the urge to blog about our efforts to go "green" because they tend to fall somewhat flat in light of my driving a minivan through Manhattan every day. However, inspired by Norma, I am sharing these:

Introducing Baggy, Bag-eel and Bag-Gob, soon to be joined by Baggle-Waggle.

They are small, fit easily in a purse or attach to a belt loop and open up to the size of an average plastic grocery bag. They also hold more, since they are stronger, and the handles are a tad more comfortable to hold. And, since the clips hook easily onto the chain retainer on the front door, we seem to be remembering to take them on shopping trips. I even grabbed Bag-Gob yesterday because I knew I was hitting the drug store on my way home. No huge Duane Reade bag for me!

As I said, we try.

(Baggy, Bag-Eel and Bag-Gob were purchased for about $5 at the 125th Street Fairway. I do not know if the 75th Street Fairway stocks them.)

Hmmm, I'm going to have to check those out. I've been using my canvas knitting totes. I WALK to the grocers, we're a no-vehicle household. Walking is the only way to travel. (I DO want a bike, though.)

I love my little bag. Let's see, lots of places are carrying them these days, including this site. Muji has them too now. Most are ~$5 ... My only complaint is that i can't easily loop the one i own over my shoulder ... I'll probably be purchasing another type soon ...

We can only do what we can do. Some of us have to drive. No choice. At least, you are making an effort in way that works for your family.

I like those bags. Guess what colors. *L* But I have mixed feelings because they are made in China. :?
