The “Green Movement” has been going on for quite a while now. It’s literally spreading everywhere- even when we go shopping. More and more stores are beginning to sell reusable shopping bags to cut down on paper and plastic, and we’re being reward for being eco- friendly.

Whole Foods offers a ten- cent “go green” discount for shoppers who bring their own shopping bags, while Target shoppers receive a five- cent discount. The reward is small, but it adds up.

Plus, these bags serve many uses other than shopping. Use them for overnights, to pack your lunch, to pack your dirty clothes in after a vacation, or as a gym tote for your sweaty shorts.
