WFMW: Reusable grocery bags

It's another WFMW! Check out more tips @ www.rocksinmydryer.typepad.com

This is a repeat for my normal readers......

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)

The day I stop seeing Wal Mart bags on the side of the street will be a glorious day indeed.

I would LOVE it if they would do away with plastic bags. I've already started carrying many of my own, including a "cooler bag". I think that it's a small thing that you can do to make a difference.

Thanks for posting. Too bad I don't have a Wal Mart here!

Thanks for the tip! I'll be picking some up Saturday then :) I have read so much about using these type of bags and do bring my own bags to the library instead of using the plastic grocery bags, but I think it will be a good switch to do this at the grocery store too- maybe I'll even spend less if I have a limited number of bags to put the stuff in...
