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


I keep a small fold-up bag in my purse so I always have one on hand. Now I have no excuses!

Plastic bags end up in tree tops and sea beds. Turtles mistake the bags for jellyfish and die after ingesting them. How can the so-convenience possibly be worth the destruction to our environment. Plastic bags should be outlawed. At the very least, responsible shoppers should never, ever use them.

I re-use the bag as my kitchen and bathroom trashbags so I don't have to purchase a seperate product.

You only require 1 bag? Must be nice to live on nuts.

I always bring my own bags and have for years. I sometimes ask for a paper bag to recycle my newspoapers and our garbage company recycles the bag. Our garbage company also has a state of the art recycling system where all garbage is sorted into recyables. We recycle whenever possible.

No choice here; just plastic ones are available at the checkout in the Czech Republic.

I use the plastic bag to clean my litter box.

Whole Foods now doesn't offer anything but paper. When I buy large bags of organic carrots, I don't have them put in more bags. I buy so many groceries at once that I don't have enough bags to bring my own. However, I hope to increase my own bag supply to bring with me in the future!

we use 9 bags of our own and sometimes we have to use plastic bags from the store. Our store gives credit for using our own bags . it is just a few cents but every little bit helps.
