Anti Plastic Law passed. Everybody Help.

There are so many plastic grocery bags and Styrofoam take out boxes that are not biodegradable.  Please do your part and use a washable, cloth tote bag for your groceries (they sell them at WalMart,) and also take with you a to-go Tupperware type container when you eat out and expect to take left overs home with you.  We have been using the tote bags for years for groceries and now started to take our own to go containers for restaurant take out.  One restaurant gave everyone who had their own take out container free dessert. !  Please help decrease plastic.

Good news.  We went to Adelita's today and they have changed to paper take out containers.  also we saw more people with their own Tupperware type containers.  I was also told the Brew House has changed to paper take out containers.  Complying with the anti plastic law.

It is a start to educate about the harmful plastics that usually ends up in the lakes or oceans, deadly to marine life.

The Tupperware type of container doesn't LEAK! That's a bonus I hadn't thought about. So many things that we don't think about when, in fact, we should.

It's going to be a bit sticky until we find solutions for all the things we used plastic bags for, but we'll survive. Very Happy

I am nearly 100% compliant.

Mesh bags for produce and stuff, with a locking drawstring, are available at Mi Rancho Cremeria in Chapala. Several sizes. And the healthy food store at Centro Laguna has ordered biodegradable garbage can bags for me - and they can for you too. They had 3 sizes and sell by the kilo. Med size was 79 pesos/kg.

Restaueants Luna Cacao and Machimá have been using paper to-go containers for awhile already.

OK all you dog owners/walkers - what are your options if we all loose the plastic bags?
