Study Finds Reusable Bags Hold Bacteria

Reusable shopping bags are great for the environment, but we do have a word of caution.
If you're using those bags when you shop, that's great. Just make sure you wash them from time to time.

Researchers recently did an experiment in Idaho. For two weeks, they did their shopping with four reusable bags.
They even marked them so their produce would never end up in the same bag as the meat they bought a few days before.

  1. This is a good tip that I guarantee is almost overlooked by most people, including myself! It's especially timely because more stores are pushing these bags on consumers by placing them in site at checkstands as well eliminating the option for plastic bags. Other factors leading to an increase in use of these type bags are the push to become more green and a down economy. I think just as important as washing the bags is the tip to keep meats and produce separate from all other products and each other. I also worry that the process of having to fill up the sink with water to wash them (as suggested) could cancel out the "green" factor. It's hard to win when it comes to being green, trade-offs make it very difficult but it's still worth trying.
