Why Don't More People.....

If you have read my past posts you might remember that I have recently started working at Petco. Well I have a question.

I work the registers there most of the times (sometimes I do fish woohoo :D ). Why don't people bring in their canvas bags. I know lots of people have them I see them in the grocery store with them stuffed into their carts waiting to be filled with their groceries and saving the environment one bag at a time.
So how come they don't use them at Petco.... or any other place for that matter. The only place I see people using them is the grocery store. But those bags are reusable so why not reuse them to the maximum extent possible? They will hold more then grocery how about clothes, toys, pet food, fish souvenirs from your vacation, on and on the possibilities are endless. The fewer plastic bags we use the fewer that go into the landfills and less oil is used to create them. You have them in the car already, just waiting for the next trip to the supermarket so just grab them anytime you need to carry something from any place you need to get something.


On a lighter note Kristie over at MY CRAZY LIFE is having a contest celebrating her 50th post.
(psst....she is giving away CHOCOLATE ) So go check her out and say congrats.

Great tip! We always use ours at the grocery store. I will have to remember them at other stores.

I noticed that too! I bring mine with me EVERYWHERE!

I think the reason behind this is that stops at the pet store are generally last minute, on the way home kinds of stops and not planned visits to the store.

I have canvas bags - tons of them, but I can never seem to remember to grab them when I head to the store. I'm trying to get better...
