When a ban was considered in Park City, Utah I wrote a letter to the editor proposing a "tie the knot" campaign. The primary purpose of the ban was to reduce litter from saltating fugitive bags but they don't get too far with a midriff knot. Alas, the ban was enacted anyway.

Years ago I remember the war on paper bags. Killed too many trees.

BUT

Trees are a renewable resource.

Sustainability? Isn't that the new buzz word?

“Is The Musical finished?”

We have 5 songs, one dance number, and an advertising campaign. “Come see the Number Two show on Broadway!!”

The single use bags were made in California the $1 reusable bags sold by supermarkets are made in China. You figure it out......

I'm with Gato. If you can re-use something, use it. That's not a knock on disposable items, but it's important not to take them for granted.

We line our wastebaskets with grocery plastic bags and let the dump sort it out.

Plastic bags grow on trees.

It is illegal for citizens to own the seeds or saplings of the PBT (plastic bag tree).

I put my cat poop in plastic bags.
But our Giant supermarket has been giving out really cheap ones for the past couple of years - many of them have holes and are just too thin...so now I use the Shop Rite bags.

TMI?

Perhaps they need to rethink the whole paper plastic, cloth bag thing. The old Costco model of using boxes and such was much more elegant in my mind. Solved two problems at once as the box did not fall over in the car.

But they are hard to get in your pocket when you want to pick up pet waste.

There's no talk of an outright ban on plastic grocery bags here, but our local store started charging 5 cents a bag about 15 years ago. Since we typically used about 10 bags a week but only needed 2 or 3 for garbage, the rest of them went directly into the trash.

Our solution was to buy 5 plastic grocery bins (that can be used for years) at a total cost of $25. Since our store gives a credit of 2 cents per bin used, we've recovered that more than twice over.

The real benefit is we have NOT added over 5000 bags to the local landfill.

A couple of data points: In DC, you get a nickel discount on your groceries for each of your own bags that the clerk fills, rather than using the store's. A reward for good behavior.

Bar Harbor, Maine, recently banned grocery stores from using plastic bags; they went back to paper, though many customers bring reusable bags. The sky did not fall.

Brown paper bags are compostable. I tear 'em in strips and they break down in my compost bin. Saves landfill space and helps my garden grow.

Plastic is a menace. If you eat fish, you're probably ingesting a lot of microplastics, as one example.

Paper bags are a renewable item.

If you eat sea food you are not only subjecting yourself to mercury, you are also ingesting plastic.

Yep, that war on paper bags was a winner.

CO2 ... is there anything it can't do?
Sep 16th, 2019 10:01 AM   Edit   Profile  

I just love it when a Soccer Mom waddles her self-important ass into the grocery store carrying her filthy reusable shopping bags and proceeds to load two cases of bottled water into her cart. She shows up at the checkout with a cart full of "healthy choice" foods packaged (in plastic) and processed for her convenience, and then trundles the whole mess out to her Escalade which she has left running with the A/C on because she couldn't tear her rugrats away from their iPhones long enough for them to help out with the food shopping.

I'm not against conservation -- note how I didn't waste any periods in the rant. I'm just not a fan of hypocrisy.
