One of my green recycling tips is avoid the use of plastic bags. I really don’t like tons of plastic bags around in the house! Instead I have a few favorite eco chic bags that I carry around with me. They are very handy especially when I go into the food market and I don’t have to use the plastic bags. Avoiding to use plastic bags means saving our planet and stop the pollution. If I have any plastic bags, I try to reuse them as much as I can. When I go shopping big quantities I have 2 bigger bags where I can put everything. This way I avoid picking plastic grocery bags.
Sometimes I use one of these cotton bags even instead of my hand bag, especially now in summer. It’s light and handy to carry around. I can also wash all of them, because they are made from organic cotton.
I received the first bag (from left) as a gift. It was bought in Loft 18, a nice eco boutique in Paris. The second bag is from the shop Made in the shade in Milano, where I was buying Dr.Bronner’s organic cosmetic. It is made from light cotton and is very useful, cause I can put it in every other bag, so I always have an additional bag with me, in case of extra shopping. I bought the third bag in H&M, because I like its inscription and shape.
