It's so exciting to see how many people have participated in the #skipthebag challenge. Keep up the great work by refusing plastic bags! I've had many people say that they already routinely use reusable bags while shopping. So I'd like to extend level two and level three challenges to them.
Level two #skipthebag is using reusable produce bags. I recently purchased some produce bags* and I love them! Mine fold in quarters and have a draw sting bag closure. I consider it a more advanced level because it would be silly to use reusable produce bags and then put them in a plastic bag. Especially if you are purchasing a lot of fresh fruit and vegetables, using reusable produce bags can save a lot of plastic!

Unfortunately part of the reason why I tried to reach for level three is that I haven't found many stores that sell bulk food. Or at least ones that sell bulk food that we actually want. Most stores I've found that sell any bulk food, sell candy or nuts or other treats that we just don't eat. I'd love to find baking ingredients, lentils and spices! I haven't given up though, there are still some specialty and 'ethnic' food stores I need to check out.
Which level of the #skipthebag challenge are you on?
