well, today matteo and i went to whole foods armed with our mesh bags and glass jars.
we filled them with dried fruit, pickles, bread, and fruits only to arrive at checkout to a friendly clerk alerting me that the colorado health department is no longer allowing people to shop with their own reusable glass jars and that the mesh bags can only be used in the produce section not the bulk bins.
i'm really disappointed.
let's be honest, a typical trip to a grocery store can yield SO MUCH GARBAGE in the form of packaging.
i think i'm going to have to try to reuse the offered baggies and packaging at these stores from now on.
