Genius... Pure Genius!

I'm very conservation conscience. I used cloth diapers on both kids, I breast fed both kids, I recycle, I save water, my kids ride their bikes to school, I carry cloth grocery sacks in my car every where I go. BUT when I go into a grocery store my bags remain in the car. I can't seem to remember them to save my life. Usually I'll be at the check out when something jogs my memory that they are in the car. If I have a kid with me I'll send them out to get them if there is time. If I'm by myself... screw the environment I use the stores bags. Paper or plastic...yes please... anything to keep me from getting a little extra exercise in my day.

I stopped by Trader Joe's to pick up some cereal and there in the parking lot was this genius of a sign!! "got bags?" I LOVED it! I grabbed my well traveled bags from the back of my car and let them see the inside of a grocery store. Felt so good. Now to get all the grocery stores to put up this handy sign.

I do the same thing Lynne. I've gotten really good at taking them to Trader Joe's, but the other grocery stores, nope. I'll have to check and see if my TJ's has that sign up yet.
