This is really a no-brainer. Something simple you can do to incorporate more planetary awareness into your life. . . and it won’t cost you a dime.

The next time you come home with plastic grocery bags, set them aside. They can have a great second life as liners for smaller trash cans around the house, or in a pinch, creative stuffing for throw pillows until you can set aside the cash for fiber inserts. You can also use them to pick up pet droppings in the park or carry inconvenient items. We’ve also used them on road trips to make sure there’s a central collection point for automobile garbage. Any other ideas out there? Feel free to post!

    They’re also great as packing material when you need to ship fragile objects!

    I love my re-usable cloth bags for when I go grocery shopping though!
