Whether you use a small load-carrying basket on the front or rear rack of your bike, a compact shopping cart trailer, a larger cargo trailer for transporting heavy loads or even a retro-stylish short john, all of these approaches enable a convenient, environmentally-friendly buying experience.
Going shopping with a cargo bike or bicycle trailer coupled with the use of reusable cloth (cotton, canvas, etc) shopping bags over plastic bags helps, as part of a proactive approach to reducing your carbon footprint, by reducing your personal dependency as a consumer on fossil fuel.
