Colorado Springs Gazette 02.08.08

Paper or plastic? Neither, thank you. That’s what eco-savvy consumers are saying these days when they go shopping. They’re shunning both in favor of BYOB — bring your own bag.

Most grocery stores have their own branded versions. They’ve also proliferated online at such sites as Denverbased delight.com and reusablebags.com, the latter of which features a counter that flashes the number of plastic bags used this year — more than 51 billion and counting, the last time we looked. Also included are tips from reusablebags.com on how to become a more eco-friendly shopper.
