Okay, I think this is probably a good idea: Make cloth shopping bags, and then talk with the owner of your local supermarket about getting all the bags you've made and put them in a bin inside the entrances. Maybe get a few friends to help make the bags too, (you'll want to make a lot of them, or, if you have enough money, buuy them).

Then, make a sign and have it say something like "Eco Friendly shopping bags; take a few then replace in bin when done loading groceries into vehicle" or something along those lines, lol. You may have to pay some to have a bin there, but this is why I've formed a strong friendship (it may take a couple months, but after developing a strong relationship, anyone is usually more likely to go along, or even help you with your plans). Anyway, tell what you guys think! :D

Would you be prepared to have bags disappearing at the rate of, say, one per day? Your approach might, on the other hand, bring out the best in the customers; and who knows, a popular movement to make and offer cloth bags, might arise.

Thanks for the thoughtful idea.
