Ditch plastic shopping bags

I wholeheartedly agree with the plea to stop people from using plastic bags and agree with the sentiment of the article.

However, Cayman has come a long way in the past year and a half.

At least two of the big supermarkets have reusable cloth bags that can be purchased in the store.

Big Daddy’s sells three and six section cloth wine bags to protect and carry wine easily.

Most of my friends take their reusable bags to the supermarket and I have never had a strange look from any of the lovely ladies serving me when I produce them.

It would be great if more people used their own bags and hopefully this will come.

I estimate that I save over 1,000 plastic bags a year simply by reusing my canvas ones.
