I just got an email from A Single Bag, a company trying to save the planet one reusable bag at a time. The North Charleston business is making these bags from fully recyclable (not here) polypropylene, which means they are durable and waterproof. And while I can’t vouch for the bags personally (send us some!), the 19″ handles are encouraging. The bags are $4.99 each, and there are wholesale opportunities available.
Whether or not you buy one from A Single Bag, please consider bringing your own reusable bag with you the next time you go shopping. This one small act can make a positive impact on the environment by reducing garbage production, plastic pollution, and dependence on oil. We have more information on the local reusable bag scene here, here, and here.
