  • Reflection Question
    Waste Use Reusable Bags
    What do you do if you find yourself in the situation of needing a bag for items but don't have a reusable one with you or aren't allowed to use the one you brought? Carry things out in your hands? In a cart? Accept a disposable one? If you find yourself in this position often, what system could you put in place to try to create a successful habit of not using plastic bags?

    I either carry out or ask for a box. I have started carrying extra reusable bags in my car and if I have to take a disposable bag, I reuse it as much as possible: even returning to store to reuse it or using it as a trash bag. I'd like to use this ecochallenge to research more sustainable trash bags.
