"I Don't Need A Bag"

Five simple words that could seriously impact the environment if everyone got in the habit of saying them. Unfortunately, sometimes it's difficult. Either you don't have a plastic bag alternative, or the cashier at the grocery (or other) store has already bagged your items before you even finish unloading your cart. More than once I've had to ask for my items taken out of the plastic bag they're already in. And more than once, whoever does it has an attitude about it. But as more and more people use reusable bags, the assumption that everyone wants a plastic bag will happen less and less. So stay strong and resist the plastic bags, no matter how inconvenient it might be.

Thrice this weekend I had to remove my purchase from the suffocating confines of a plastic bag and each time I explained to the aggressor: "No thank you, I am going green." I got a few weird looks, but I spread the word AND didn't accumulate any bags this weekend.
