Reusing the shopping bags is really good idea.Reusing will save our resource .But on the other hand this reused plastic also hazardous to be use .proper care should be taken.

Here in Arlington, TX we soon won't have a choice about our shopping bags. The city council voted to ban plastic bags from stores.

I used them to scoop up after my dogs when I take them walking so now what? Go buy the special plastic bag rolls of doggie bags in a pet store? seems like that's defeating the purpose.

I've looked into biodegradable bags for doggie waste but they are expensive. Anyone have an idea on what to use?

Joan, that is such a good point! What is the point of creating a new demand for bags?

Maybe a good compromise would be if storekeepers asked first if customers actually wanted a bag? Then dog owners could say yes, i'll be recycling mine!

I use cloth bags, only thing is there big, and they pack them real heavy. even when i ask them not to pack them so heavy i am so glad i don't have to carry them up a hill or a lot of steps

Moe, that is a very interesting lens. Is a lens like a mini-blog?

No. I save the bags and bring them to Wal-Mart or Central Market, both stores recycle them.

I also have cloth bags for food shopping and am still not use to bring them into the stores.

I save them but end up using them as garbage bags in the bathrooms etc. I use empty 4L (1 gallon) milk jugs by cutting a hole in the side to store the bags. The jug can hold a lot of bags and make them easy to store. I keep one in the trunk for when I go to the Real Canadian Superstore to get groceries because they don't have bagging services and I don't want to buy more bags.

If you have plastic bags re-use them otherwise your washing basket serves the purpose. The plain green bags do the trick especially if you have to walk. If you can afford to buy a green at a buck each once a week it will benefit us all in the long run. Plastic bags should be phased out altogether. Designer grocery bags? How ludicrous!
