my environmental conundrum
Minneapolis has a recycling program (like nearly every city). We set out a variety of recyclables, and most of them need to go in paper bags.
Chris and I have started trying to be better about using cloth bags when we grocery shop in the past year. (I bet you can see where this is going). Now we’ve run out of paper bags for the recycling to go into. What’s a good environmentalist to do?
The only solution I can see is to ask for paper bags every third or so trip to the grocery store, so we keep a small stock of paper bags. Am I missing some other obvious solution? Is there some sort of paper bag trading post?
