#30 Make the switch to reusable grocery bags
I'm not huge on the whole "green" movement. I roll my eyes when I see yet another magazine come out with a "green issue." I think it's completely ridiculous that people buy carbon offsets. And for a while I thought that taking reusable bags to the market was just a silly trend. But plastic bags from the grocery store annoy the heck out of me, and I realize they are a complete waste. I've been thinking about making the switch to a reusable bag for a couple months, but I just hadn't gotten around to it. Today at HEB I purchased 2 big green bags for $0.99 each. Sure, it isn't much, but every little bit counts. This may even open up my eyes to making other small "green" changes.
