  1. We use the re-usable bags and never wash them. We probably should. Every decision has an impact, it’s difficult to know which is best.
    When I go to a store and get 1 item I do not get a bag.

    1. Oh yes! Specially if you carry fruits an vegs or even eggs. I have to admit I didn’t know that the cotton bags were leaving such an important footprint behind, one knows that plastic is “the bad guy” but we don’t know about the other materials and their impact on the making. We always go for the reusable as well, I might search for a basket cane for myself now! The only problem I find is that the space is not that big or not easy and comfortable to carry, but hey! There are also backpacks! 😉
      Thank you for passing by!

We appreciate your feedback! 💚
