As I wrote in last year’s Hall of Food Shame post, I lost half a kilo of high-quality honey to the fickleness of a plastic shopping bag whose strap broke. One minute after buying both items. Needless to say, I was moderately annoyed and immediately sewed several fabric shopping bags which I distributed into all of the purses and backpacks I use in daily live. This way I will never have to rely on crappy plastic bags again.
I also started to wrap my christmas gifts in fabric bags; there are always remains of pretty fabrics to make gift bags out of, less waste is created, and presentees can reuse the bag.
