Trying to be 'green'

Now, we all know I don't really like Wal-Mart. However- I found this pretty sweet deal on their website.......check it out:

1 Million Reusable Bag Giveaway on April 19
As part of Earth Month 2008, Wal-Mart and Kellogg’s will be partnering to give away one million custom-made reusable shopping bags on Saturday, April 19th at 8AM local time*.
Plastic bags can take as long as 1,000 years to degrade. Wal-Mart sells reusable shopping bags every day made from recycled materials you can use instead, for just $1.
*While supplies last.

We are trying to be more green, so I went to Wal-Mart tonight and purchased 5 of these bags with my free $5 gc I earned a few months back for taking a survey.
While checking out, the cashier told me that in 2009, Wal-Mart will either not have plastic bags or they will charge a small fee per bag. (like IKEA does now)

I love this! I have been using these bags since last year. They hook onto the grocery cart and you can fill them up as you shop, unload, pay , then have the bagger put them right back in. Unloading is a breeze, because now I only have one (or two) bags to load into the trunk!

Using a reusable bag is something I haven't gotten into, which is so silly as it is so easy. I'll have to check out the free ones, and most likely get a couple more! Great post!
