when grocery shopping during Covid

3 things to do when you're not allowed to use reusable bags & containers


reusable grocery bags

Solution Ask cashier to put unbagged groceries back  into the cart after checkout, then you bag 'em into your reusable bags


reusable produce bags

Solution Set produce straight into your cart while shopping... then after checkout, you put produce into your own eco bag


reusable bulk containers

• Skip the bulk section which has pre-packed pesky plastic bags of dry ingredients... • Go to Costco, Sam's, or a restaurant supply store... • Then buy 25 lb. paper packages of rice, beans, sugar, nuts, etc... • Store in reused 3 or 5 gallon buckets (can usually be found for free at your local bakery)
