My husband and I try to consolidate our trips when we shop to cut down on our driving. We use canvas bags for groceries and take a supply of glass and plastic containers for bulk items like honey, syrup or olives. We also re-use our coffee bags and produce bags.
We are not big box shoppers--actually we despise them on many levels--environmentally, aesthetically, and socially. We typically support local merchants, especially during the Farmer's Market season when we buy locally grown, organic produce. Occassionally, I shop on-line, but not often--only when I need something I can't find locally.
We are hoping that if there is improved bus service in our area that we can, from time to time, take the bus to do our shopping--the current bus schedule in our area makes that difficult.
