Guide: Get groceries without making any CO2

Steps to get it done:

Check out this guide, and get motivated
While there isn't really likely a way for you to get there without making absolutely any CO2, what we're going for is that you are walking, biking, or taking some form of electric transportation that is powered by 100% clean energy. Getting groceries is one of those tasks that people do pretty regularly and that is seen as something that can't be done without a car.
Step 1: Is this feasible?
You might not think so, but let's take a look. First question is, can you get to a grocery store without making CO2? Can you walk or bike to a store? Do you have an electric or plug-in vehicle? Is there electricity-powered public transportation nearby? If not, look at the Drive Less guide and see if you can do that one instead.
Step 2: Make a plan
Ok, so you've found a way to get there, now how do you get all of your food back? Backpacks are great, as are reusable shopping bags (they are sturdy and hold lots of stuff). You can always recruit help in carrying things from friends and family. Another option if you are biking is a trailer. Talk to people who you know who've done this or find people on this site who have successfully completed this guide for more ideas.
Step 3: Stick to it
Try it out for a few weeks and see how it works. If you are encountering problems, ask for help and talk to people on this website. If you are succeeding, check this off and you're done.
