Sustainable Living 10

A new way I've come up with to be live a more sustainable life is to keep a "sustainable bag" in my vehicle.  This bag contains:

  • a reusable cup for when I'm away from home and want some iced tea
  • several plastic jars marked with the tare (weight) for buying items from bulk bins
  • muslin drawstring bags for buying produce
  • a collapsible container for when I need a doggie bag at a restaurant
In the past, I've found myself away from home without these items and ended up getting plastic bags, plastic cups, and/or Styrofoam containers.  Having this bag in my vehicle at all times will help eliminate all that waste.  I haven't included reusable bags as I've been using them for quite a while now and always have them available.
