Reusable shopping bags are capable of holding more than just groceries. Use yours when you shop for clothes, shoes, electronics, jewelry, cosmetics – you name it – and save money! Zero Waste Marin also frequently provides reusable shopping totes as giveaways at local events in Marin. Check out our News & Events page to see where our booth will be set up next.
- Start each shopping list by writing, “Bring reusable shopping bags.” Keep a reusable shopping bag full of more reusable shopping bags in the trunk of your car, by your door and in your office. That way, you’ll be prepared for spontaneous shopping sprees and unavoidable red-tag sales.
- If you accidentally forget your reusable shopping bag, ask yourself, “Can I carry this?” before requesting a disposable bag from the cashier.
- Don’t forget to wash your reusable shopping bags on a regular basis, especially after carrying meat or dairy products.
