Purchasing your own shopping bags is an eco-friendly alternative to using plastic bags (if you stores still even offer them) and many are designed to make grocery shopping as easy as possible. Shopping bags usually fall into one of two categories: box-style bags and regular, soft-body bags. While regular shopping bags are lightweight and easy to carry, box-style bags can help you stay organized and tend to work best for larger, heavier loads as well. Some shopping bags are insulated to help your goodies stay fresh. A sturdy set of handles is worth looking for, regardless of the style, and all the better if they're reinforced. Remember, spills and leaks are always a possibility and something that's easy to clean will probably serve you best in the long run.
