It is though, and here’s the story.
This is the pile of plastic from just one week’s worth of groceries from Walmart, which someone kindly shops for us and loads in our car in the Walmart parking lot.
Some bags contain one item of food. Never are there more than three items in a bag. Many items are double-bagged. Some are not even heavy, such as three onions in one double bag. And one item in this order was triple-bagged!
There are 23 bags in this pile for $63 worth of groceries. If I bagged them myself, they would fit into three reusable bags.
Last week we had an opportunity to drive an hour south for Senior Hour at Trader Joe’s in Charleston.
Trader Joe’s limits the number of people, won’t let anyone in the store without a mask, AND they allow you to bring your own bags.
And look at this, the object of my delight for today ...
Organic potatoes. In a PAPER bag.
Even the little window is not plastic. It is made of sugar cane! The whole thing can be used as a fire starter in the fireplace when the potatoes are gone.
How DELIGHTFUL is that!
