    Maui banned plastic bags some time ago. It certainly helped the landfill, which is in the central part of the island where winds blow through every day.

    The local recycler has no use for plastic bags and puts them in the garbage.

    The best thing is to bring your own canvas bags to the grocery store.

    Well I suppose activism has to start somewhere?

    How long will it take for them to become aware of the erosion of their personal liberties, as guaranteed under the constitution?

    Before or after it becomes a quaint chapter taught in History class?

    Don’t worry. The garbage patch will be there for our grandchildren. Plastic lasts a good long time.

    So what are you saying? That using plastic bags is patriotic while “liberal” ideas like recycling are destroying America?

    If you are going to look for spelling errors, don’t forget syntax and punctuation. You’ll be busy all day, every day.

    Here is a clue for you, that number isn’t of “babies” so you are ignorant here. Worse partially educated here. But then it is you and your religious fanatical ilk that are trying to wreck our country. I see you and your Plutocrat funders working to turn us into a corporate theocratic America.

    Kroger says to bring plastic bags to recycle. I do that. We need to stress on re-use and re-cycle. Stop throwing away. We have long passed the ability to just dump everything.

    Without plastic bags, how would I deal with my indoor cat’s “creations?”

    Cripes! Thanks for that, Baslim.

    Haiku Grocery Store. I bet they have some fun writing their sale ads.

    I carry a half dozen chico bags (google, if you don’t know) on my hip pack. I haven’t brought plastic bags home in several years. I also have string bags, duck bags, and a couple of those fake fabric bags so many stores sell.

    Keychain bags (like the chico bags) are great. My SIL carries one on his belt loop. You never get to the register and say ‘oh … I have bags in the van!’. They’re no use to you out there, but keychain bags are always with you!

    Yeah, they’re nylon. However, since they are practically indestructible – I swear, my husband can get ninety pounds into one – they aren’t being dumped into the landfills by the hundreds.

    That makes them an acceptable compromise in my book. I may try to find a cotton that works, and make some, but they’ve sure limited the plastic in my recycling.

    Speaking of recycling – hands up, those who think recycling today is a joke? Those who remember literally recycling everything; liquids all came in glass bottles – most returnable, the rest just glass, rags were valuable . My grandmother used to tear down my grandfather’s sweaters when they got thin at the elbow, wash the wool and make sweaters for the grands. My mother used to tear down coats and make us winter clothes – including the fur trims. ‘Fast food’ came wrapped in newspaper.

    By the time we threw something away, it really was finished – and was truly biodegradeable.

    Recycling? HAH. We are scrambling to mitigate a huge industrial mess, which should not be our responsibility. It’s true, we can still buy some naked produce – but why should I have to accept plastic packaging when I buy organic produce??? Or, for that matter, any food.

    I think I’m going to institute a new household policy. Henceforth, I am NOT going to buy any food – certainly not any organic food – that comes in plastic bags, boxes or wrappings. Except lettuce, which I have not seen sold unwrapped in decades.

    Still … a step in the right direction, eh? Lol!
