Bags of Change: Carrot Better Than Stick – TreeHugger:

Bags of Change encourages responsible shopping bag use by dangling a tasty carrot. In short you get a discount at any participating store into which you to take their funky organic hemp-cotton or Amazonian latex bags. So far over 50 stores are involved.

I kid because I care. Actually, I think it’s a pretty cool idea. My problem is my terrible memory. At least half the time I remember my cloth bags when I’ve got a cart full of groceries (and the bags are safe and sound at home). My memory might be a little better if I had a financial stake in the matter. That or I’d just have more reason to hate myself when I forgot.

Give the gift of words.
