Baskets are one way I shop green. While living in Germany I did all my shopping using baskets. This way of life continued after I returned to the states. I get a few stares now and then with a cart full of baskets; living in the Midwest you can expect that. I don't mind at all. I've been doing it for so long that it does not bother me. These are some of the types I use. I love the colorful ones.
