This is a combination of week 3 and 4 of my personal challenge to ban the plastic bag and utilize a reusable tote. Find the earlier posts here.
I have to confess there have still been instances where I have forgotten to take a bag into a store with me. I haven’t purchased much lately and have refused a bag as I walk out stores with my few purchased un-bagged items.
Again this week, I’m featuring the skit from IFC’s Portlandia starring Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein. This is the entire scene which includes Jack McBrayer (from 30 Rock) who forgets his bag and finally declares, “I’m just going to carry it.” He hugs, juggles and balances his groceries as he attempts to exit the store. That part begins about 1:98 and it makes me laugh because I can relate.
Other than the times I’ve forgotten my bag, the plastic bag ban is going well. And stores are making it easy.
