How to Save Paper: Remember Your Reusable Bag

Reminder This week’s tips are about how to cut down on paper use – there are many reasons to, perhaps the foremost of which is that much of climate change is caused by deforestation. Also, paper production consumes energy, and thrown-away sheets clog landfills. Here’s what you can do.

Tip #3: Cure “Bagnesia”

It happened again: You were in line at the grocery store, satisfied with your organic, vegetarian, not-too-packaged purchases. Then it hit you: A vision of your reusable grocery bags – collecting dust in your car’s trunk or kitchen cupboard. You sighed and lugged home your loot in bags of paper or plastic, swearing to remember better next time.

To help you, consider getting Bagnesia’s Reusable Bag Solution Kit ($20), which includes two reusable bags, plus two ways to remind yourself to bring ‘em along: a doorknob hanger that instructs, “Grab your bags,” and a steering-wheel wrap with the same imperative. To save the cash, you can develop your own reminder system – as long as it works.

Tell us: How do you remind yourself to bring reusable bags to the store?
