Shopping Trip to Forever 21
Green is slowing becoming the new black. Many big companies are jumping on the "going green" band wagon and making positive changes to help save our environment a little at a time. I went to the mall the other day and was happily surprised when at the register at Forever21 the sales associate asked if I would like to pay an extra dollar for a tote instead of their generic plastic bag. They had 2 or 3 different totes that you could choose from like the one that is shown above. I think totes that can be reused is a great idea for companies to do, grocery stores are doing it so why not retail? The bags can be reused and it will help eliminate some of the plastic that is being thrown away and ending up in landfills.
