Zero Waste Wedneday: Plastic Bag Alternatives

I have been writing, from time to time, about our efforts to reduce waste. We have been especially focusing on how to reduce waste involved in grocery shopping and meal preparation.

We all know about canvas grocery bags. But what about the other plastic bags in our lives? What about Ziplocs and produce bags? I’ve found myself putting fruits and vegetables straight into the canvas bag, so that I won’t have to use a plastic bag.
