Do your reusable bags carry E. coli? Wow. I didn’t even think of that. Story over at Futurity (via @guykawasaki)

    Here you go Jaden – NPR covered this, too, but explain more about the number of bags found with bacteria and that most are not necessarily harmful. That being said, I do wash my chico (nylon, pouch-style) bags from time to time, have not tried to wash the branded kinds you buy in the store.
