What bag do you choose at the supermarket checkout? (Comments & Reviews)


Invariably, my bag is in the car, but I'm getting better at remembering it!

Depends on what store I am at... But, I try to *remember* to bring my own whenever possible.

Hooray for us who bring our own bags. So simple and smart.liz

I choose paper bags, as we use them to put our newspapers and other paper for recycling in, as per our community recycling program rules. So they get recycled along with the papers. We also cut off the tops, recycle them, and use the bottoms for customers' plants during our big botanical garden plant sale each spring.

Paper is a good choice, you never see a paper bag caught up in a tree branch.

no stores should use plastic bags any more. everyone should bring their own bags. it should be a law.

I re-use the plastic store bags when walking my dogs. My neighbors are glad I do.

In South Africa, where I live, at least two supermarket chains offer the option of plast or woven fibre bags. Unfortunately, though they do charge for plastic bags as well as fibre ones, the price for plastic is cheaper. They urge recycling but most people who buy them simply trash them. Paper bags are not available form food stores unless they are pretty upmarket. When I've asked why, storekeepers say, they are too expensive.

I carry about 20 canvass bags in the trunk of my car, so if I decided on the spur of the moment to do a little grocery shopping or any other type of shopping, my own bags are ready to go.
