There's no doubt reusable shopping bags have gained popularity in the last few years but according to studies only 10% of consumers remember to use their reusable shopping bags. Many find themselves buying new bags every time they leave their home realizing they've once again forgotten to bring one along. While some argue that reusable bags can have their own negative impact on the environment, bags made with recycled fibers that are used again and again are clearly more eco-friendly than plastic bags which are generally impossible to recycle. Here are some simple solutions to help remember your bag next time you head to the supermarket:
-Keep a reusable bag in your purse. Many bags fold up quite small so you can always have one on you just in case.
-Keep reusable bags in your car
-Keep your keys in your bag so you won't be able to leave your house without it.
-Keep your bags by the front door so it's in clear sight when you're coming and going.
Still keep forgetting your bag? Don't use a bag if you don't need one, or opt for a box/paper bag if available.
