Ken's post in my grocery store thread made me think of this. No judgement @Ken Anderson. A couple of years ago the county I live in stopped using plastic grocery bags and paper are now 10 cents. I think Walmart has some kind of heavier plastic bag that's supposed to be re-usable and they may be 25 cents. People had minor anxiety over this but it's been interesting to see everyone adjust. One of my co-workers stated she was having fun watching what people were using at WINCO when this transition first happened. I see a lot of people with Trader Joe's bags because they are cheap. Myself, I was laughing because I had been using cloth bags for 10+ years at the time. I make my own and to my surprise have got a lot of compliments on them. I've even been asked if I sell them. I wouldn't. They are sturdy though and hold up to washings. I like the wash-ability. Re-usable bags have probably been around Europe longer I'm assuming. Thoughts? Anyone else using re-usable bags?
