    saw a pack of three cloth bags in Marshalls store, that can be used to bag your fruits and vegies.  It has a string to tie a know on the bag, after it is filled up.  Say No to grocery store when they as you Paper or Plastic.  Say neither, just use your own cloth bags

    Hs any one tried a biodegradable straw made of of plant materials?  it is now available in many grocery stores.  It is completely compostible

    I discovered biodegradable straws I found in Marshall’s store which are made from plant material & fiber which can be composted very easily :  a pack of 100 straws cost only 2$.  This experience told me that more environmentally friendly substitutes are very possible to manufacture :  if more of these are biodegradable and compostable  straws can be produced, then there would be no need to manufacture plastic straws
