    And pick-up bags for dog poo! It’s better to re-purpose them than buy custom, single-use bags.

    I agree! I use my plastic and paper bags for lots of stuff and then recycle the ones I don’t use.

    Make sure to double those plastic bags.

    You mean those germ ridden cloth bags and judging (yes, I judge) from the scruffy looking folks carrying said cloth bags, probably not laundered after each shopping trip. Ahh… the joys of PC.

    Amen. ..those things are nasty. A grocery store checkout clerk I know says you would be amazed at the number of those things that are unwashed and filled with crumbs, vegetable bits and even blood stains from the meat. Gross!

    Exactly! Plus, they’re part of my purchase and belong to me, so get over it granola-crunching, Birky wearing hippies!

    I suggest non of you move to Austin, Texas. A strictly bring-you-own-reusable-bags city. It’s done wonders for the local environment already – no more flimsy-yet-indestructable plastic bags in the river, in the trees, blowing around, in the landfills, etc. It’s like the old saying: “paper or plastic?” = “choke a fish or kill a tree?”

    Wash your clothes, wash your shopping bags.

    In most parts of Argentina they will put your shopping into a plastic bag without asking if you don’t stop them in time. What most bugs me are the teeny-tiny bags in the pharmacy that you can’t re-use for anything. Over the years so many of the plastic nuissances have accumulated that I can’t even get rid of them all as garbage bags.
    For 4 years I’d been getting strange looks for using a hiker’s backpack and cloth bags to walk home my grocery shopping. Then the supermarkets started charging for plastic bags and suddenly everyone had cloth bags and trolleys :-)

    I always use cloth bags, and yes, I wash them. And I suppose I’m an over-aged hippy – seventy-one and holding.

    Right on!.
    .
    Now if people only realized how filthy most food stores are.
    .
    There is a reason they keep their lights on 24 hours.
    .
    “Want me to wrap this fruit in plastic so it stays clean, ma’am?”
    .
    No thanks. I always wash my produce when I bring it home.
    .
    Now, if the wind would just blow down the neighbor’s plastic bags. They have been fifty feet up in our oak tree for the last two years.

    One idiotic, nanny-state town nearby banned plastic grocery bags and makes you pay extra for paper ones. I try to avoid taking my business to that town whenever possible, and otherwise walk out without bags since I try to buy as little as possible within their borders. Next step will be to buy my own plastic bags, which you can get for less than a penny apiece, and keep them in the car for use wherever I am.
