It’s Hard to be Green

Posted by Warren Peterson on June 29, 2010

According to a news report, a study has shown a high degree of contamination in reusable shopping bags. Yes, using that “green” cloth bag at Safeway may be endangering your health. E. Coli and other bad stuff were found on over fifty percent of bags tested in the study.

One answer to the problem is wash the bags after each use but that consumes water and puts soap residue into the environment. Another solution is to line the cloth bag with a plastic bag. Still not “green” but you will be seen carrying a cloth bag. This is Seattle and social conscience appearances still support the cause. You know, like the Seattle City Council banning the city from doing business with those bigots in Arizona except for the money making red light cameras supplied by an Arizona company.
