Car-Free Shopping Options?
For those who aren’t aware, the city of Seattle is trying to impose a 20-cents-per-plastic-bag tax and are now selling reusable bags at many stores. The bags cost anywhere from $1.00 to $4.00 in price – you can buy “trendy” ones on the internet and spend a lot more. I bought 2 at the library for my kids to keep their library books in and spent $1.00 on each of them. You can find them almost anywhere now – Target, Safeway, Albertsons, even Marshalls.
Not only are stores selling these reusable bags, but there are now businesses emerging that are selling items that are supposed to make it easy to get groceries home without a car. It is the attitude of many Seattlites to “Go Green” and live to save the environment (and put a little extra money in the retailers’ pockets). So, they have come up with a few suggestions.
First, there is the Hook and Go – costing $59.95 plus shipping at www.hookandgo.com. This could work while walking with 3 kids for 3 miles. Not realistic, but we’ll see what else there is.
Thanks anyways though and good luck with your products guys!
