Review Wednesday: Reusable Washable Nylon Produce bags

I carry at least two Chico Bags in my purse so I am ready for an unexpected shopping trip, such as Michael’s today.

I carry bags in the trunk for trips to Target. I have bags in the pantry, which are used every time I go to the grocery.

I understand the need for the plastic bag ban ordinances … to a point.

But there are times when a plastic bag is … Continue reading
