On the Bandwagon Again!

Dear Whole Foods, For all the organic food you produce and purity you promote, you were always quick to slip my shopping goods in a plastic bag and a very nice heavy one at that. So after ten plus years of plastic (actually I usually requested paper), you have changed. Now, as always, the good towns people of Ann Arbor have jumped on the most recent crazy...BRING YOUR BAG TO THE STORE MONTH! In fact, they bring the dirty bags ( I think they use to stuff in their mattresses for extra cushioning). It just looks unclean. I guess some bag "style" is order for these people so their raw chicken juice can drip into something really expensive and chic! Since I cannot usually remember take my keys out of the ignition before I leave the car, I probably will not remember my snazzy grocery bags...but when I do, I will look great. Here are a few ideas for my preppy friends:

Whole Foods kills me with their thick plastic bags. I always ask for the paper shopping bag with handles. I reuse it until it falls apart. It makes a great lunch bag.

I would keep the bags with the 65 other bags I currently own and forget to take them too...

I love the third one- so pretty!

Here in Melbourne they give out those kind of bags with most store purchases. I have so many now!
