Switching to cloth or hemp reusable bags is a pretty easy, even though it might take a few weeks to readjust to it. I've been doing it for years now, and even reuse plastic bags by washing them when I need them each week for the market. This makes them last for years and it feels great to be eco friendly.
It's never too late to stop using one-use plastic bags, and make the wise choice to switch. Who knows, maybe the ban will be country wide soon. No matter what, it's time for a change.
Cheers and here's to happy, healthy living.
