Grocery Bags!

Initially it was just a threat, but as of October 1, both Mega Soriana and Bodega Aurerra no longer provide plastic bags!!!!

What a wonderful move. We think it's a statewide move, and hope so.

When it was first announced, we gathered up all of our cloth shopping bags, and we made a Modatella run for fabric, and made 10 mesh bags (blue tulle, they are gorgeous) of varying sizes to put our produce in. It was a quick, easy, fun project.

We do the majority of our shopping in town, in places other than the "grocery stores" and are finding that many of those markets no longer provide plastic bags either. WONDERFUL!!!

This meant largely as a note to our tourists who will be joining us this winter. Either bring your own bags, or purchase the nice ones from either supermarket for just 10p.

Don't be upset that you have to buy bags, reuse them and help keep Zihuatanejo beautiful!

Will this affect the baggers at the markets?
Or will you just hand them your own bags?
