    Reusable bags on a budget.

    As we were walking into Home Depot earlier this evening, I noticed that they had reusable bags. I ran over to them since I have been wanting to purchase a couple lately, and I inspected them.

    They're really nice, actually. I would say that they can hold up to 2-3 plastic bags worth of groceries. They also have a shoulder strap and some clasps to attach the bag to your cart while you shop.

    It gets even better.

    They cost $1.99 a piece.

    The downside is that they are Home Depot's obnoxious orange color, but I think fashion can suffer over not having a garbajillion plastic bags at home.

    I will post pictures later.
    I feel like this post may seem slightly off-topic, but it is definitely green (and is also a way to save money!)

    Keep Indianapolis Beautiful, Inc.'s Event Recycle Team still needs volunteers from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. for the Circle City Classic parade this Saturday, October 6.

    Volunteers get into the event for free and will also receive a free T-shirt (in a size of their preference).

    All shifts will be responsible for monitoring/maintaining the recycling bins. What this means is that you will be taking any trash out of the recycling bin (with a litter picker-upper), and putting it in the trash. Also, we’ll be looking for recyclables in the trash and transferring to the recycling bin (within reason!). When the bags are full, you will replace the bags with an empty and put the full bag on the golf cart. When the golf cart is full, the bags will then be taken to the collection dumpster. The last shift will assist in breaking down the bins.

    If you're interested, you can sign up here.



    Welcome to Green Indy!

    This community was designed to help Indiana residents with becoming more green. Now, we know that not everyone can be totally green since it may not be affordable to many people, but we hope to help you to change little things that can help the environment!

    What you can post in this community:

  • News Articles, Stories, Videos pertaining to Environmental Issues in Indiana

  • Links to websites or retailers for great greendeals such as Eco-Friendly product coupons, reusable products, etc. A good example would be coupons for Seventh Generation Dish Detergent.

  • Questions about recycling, composting, natural health options, etc. Please do NOT give medical advice on here! We are not liable for anything that may happen. You should consult a doctor, first! These posts will be removed!

  • Questions about green travelling, or trying to drive your car less, such as taking the bus.

  • This will be updated as time progresses.

    Also, please check the the tags for FAQs. Once this community becomes bigger, I will post the FAQs in a side bar.

    If you feel that your post is questionable, please feel free to contact me, Codi, through e-mail @ thaimaishuus @ livejournal dot com.

    I would really like to see this community remain active. Please feel free to ask any question. No question is too stupid, and no question will go unanswered.

    Please know that debate, negative comments, drama, trolling, etc. will not be tolerated. I'm far too old to put up with petty interwebz drama. :)
