Some grocery stores will eliminate or have already eliminated the plastic bag option at checkout. Paper bag option is still available at most of these grocery stores. However, paper bag is still tough on the environment with the use of natural resources (trees and more energy that would generate more greenhouse gas emission) to create the paper bags.
Some grocery stores that have eliminated the plastic bag options are:
Fred Meyer (10 stores in Portland, Oregon to start);
Costco (provide neither plastic nor paper bags)
There are many grocery stores that are also looking to eliminate plastic bag options in the future.
What is the best option to pack up your grocery?
Green Supply offers a wide selection of foldable reusable bags that fold into either cute animal designs or strawberry pouches, small enough to carry in your pockets.

Microfiber towels are ideal to be used as bath towels: Super-absorbent to help quickly dry your body, face and hair; Quick-dry after use, unlike ordinary cotton towels that take longer to dry and more likely to grow mildew; and most importantly gentle on your skin, unlike cotton towels that are sometimes rough on your skin after dried.
Microfiber is a combination of two man-made fibers, polyester and polyamide (nylon by-product). These two fibers are split and formed into microfiber woven fabric of 80% polyester (for scrubbing and cleaning) and 20% polyamide (for super-absorbency and quick-dry). The individual thread of microfiber towel is more than 100 times smaller than human hair, which makes microfiber towel softer than silk and able to easily pick up dust, dirt, grime and residue.
Green Supply offers a good selection of microfiber body and bath towels that are big enough to wrap around your body (size: 30” x 56”) and available in various colors (beige, blue, light blue, green, light green, orange, light orange, pink, light pink, red and light yellow). The threads for these microfiber towels are tightly looped to make the towels more super-absorbent.
Once you try Green Supply’s microfiber body and bath towels, you will be impressed by the softness, absorbency and quick-drying of these towels that you will never go back to ordinary cotton towels!
