One of my routine weekend agenda is often a trip down the supermarket or pharmacy. I make it a point to bring a reusable shopping bag whenever such trips appear on my planner, and to avoid unplanned shopping. It may not seem much, but if every one were to bring their own shopping bags, we’d cut down a lot of unnecessary waste.
I’m using a shopping tote from Cat Socrates⎯made of linen, foldable and extremely lightweight⎯that cost only $2! Plus, not much of an incentive, but shoppers do get 10-cents off when they byob at NTUC islandwide (min. $10 purchase).
