Good to know. I work in the world of automotive electronics and cars are getting greener every year.

I don't have to worry about carrying bags all the time, we make our bi monthly grocery shopping an all day trip now so we load up the lists and organizer and bags (have one of those sams club thermal bags). The main thing I'm looking for is something wider than tall so I can load it up with jars/cans without stacking them.

Get some sturdy canvas and make your own? They're just a simple box, open on one end, with webbing straps sewn on.

Any personal conservation effort is hopelessly lost amid what the third world and nature itself spews out every year. If you get all tingly using a cloth grocery bag, knock yourself out.

and by the way, bah humbug. <img src="/images/graemlins/smirk.gif" alt="" />

I know and I bet my ultra compact bag is made in China.

No one person or group is going to cure all the ills of the world. America is the biggest waster of resources in it. All we can do is hope to affect our little corner of it.

Not trying to feel all tingly, I just want something that can carry baby food jars

America has used more resources to improve more lives in more places in the world than any other country in history. No one has the tract record of aid the US does. And it certainly isnt that other countries have some sort of moral upper hand. They would gladly trade for the right to be the "biggest waster" in the world. Wanna see waste and abuse of the environment? Take a trip to China one day. I did and it is an eye opener. And they are just getting started.

Anyway, nuff said by me on this topic. (probably too much)

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all.

That's like running the red light because other people do it.

I make my own choices based on my values and do my best to educate / encourage others to act in a responsible manner.

Someone's got to stand up and start the ball rolling.

As Gandhi said, “You must be the change you want to see in the world.”

“Whatever you do will be insignificant, but it is very important that you do it.”

Amen Duckear!!!!

And No, it is not like running the red light because others do. The comment was not to say it's ok for us to waste resources "because others do it", it was clear what Duckear was pointing out was that ALL countries waste resources or, better put, "use them". Because we "use" resources in a less than efficient manner, does not mean we strive to waste.
