Reuseable Bags

I have to admit that I often leave my reuseable bags at home. If I leave reuseable bags in my car, they migrate to the house and remain at the house. Sometimes, I make an unexpected trip to the grocery store and have to take home a plastic bag.

Here is a great article about reuseable bags from Mother Nature Network. Here are two interesting quotes from the article if you cannot read all of it:
A nonwoven polypropylene bag, for example, would have to be used just 11 times to make up for the negative effects of a plastic bag used one time, according to a British Environment Agency study that compared bags. A cotton bag, however, would have to be used 131 times.
