We all want to be good to Mother Earth, but figuring out how to help without rearranging your whole life can be tricky. So here’s our advice for becoming a little more green: Fold up a tote bag, and keep it in your purse at all times. Instead of letting cashiers put your purchases in a paper or plastic bag, take out your handy-dandy tote. No matter what you’re buying, whether it’s a new skirt or your weekly groceries, you don’t need another disposable bag to throw out (or, hopefully, recycle) once you get home. Just don’t forget to put your tote back in your handbag so you’ll always be prepared for your next purchase.
WIN THIS! We’re giving away five cotton tote bags to help you get your green on, but you have to work if you want one. In the comments, tell us your best advice for living more eco-friendly by 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, April 29. We’ll pick our favorite responses and announce the winners on Friday, April 30. You must live in the U.S. or Canada to win. Good luck!
