Sustainable Clinton Plastic Bag Fast March 6, 2011
All praise be yours, God of the universe,  Giver of all that is Good.  In this special time of fasting  we ask for the Gift of Wisdom:  To discern what to leave behind  and what to embrace;  To open our hearts;  To learn from one another;  To share across all boundaries.  We ask for the strength to fast  and enter deeply into conversion  so we are ready to feast at the cosmic table  You set before us each day.  May our time of fasting bring us closer to You,  to all our brothers and sisters,  and to all Your Creation.  May we be energized and empowered  to be Gospel people of peace.  All praise be yours, God of the universe,  Giver of all that is Good. AMEN

Be considerate…
Ten Commandments for Reusable Bag Use Empty bags completely after use. Wash all bags regularly, after every use if necessary. Use bags that are easy for the cashier to fill.
4. 	Place your reusable bags at the front of your grocery order on the conveyer belt.  5.   Separate all bags so the cashier can easily grab each one as needed. 6.   Open bags that fold up into themselves while you are waiting in line. Don’t make the cashier wait for you to open them or make the cashier open them.
Let the cashier know how you want your order handled if you don’t have enough reusable bags.  8.   Remember when you bring reusable bags that many cashiers see you as a representative of all environmentalists.  9.   Show respect to your cashier by saying please and thank-you, helping to bag, smiling, and staying off your cell phone while he or she is waiting on you. 10. Never leave your credit card in your reusable bag.
