    I was happy to hear SF banned the plastic bags. I don’t understand why people like them so much. They require so many more trips from the car to the house. I also like to use the paper ones for my garbage can under the sink.

    that is cool!
    our old town in France banned all free bags at the supermarket (paper and plastic) you either had to bring your own or pay for the reusable ones in the shop, just that extra few cents was good motivation to remember the bag.

    Oh how wonderful! I have to practically beg my grocer to just put my things in my cloth bags! I do recycle the plastic bags though, in fact the heap in my closet is growing…gotta get on that. But I digress…so excited that SF took the plunge, maybe NYC will follow soon?

    I think it’s a bit ridiculous –

    i think it’s a little ridiculous too. a couple nights ago at the grocery store they were out of plastic so i had to use paper and it was so awkward to carry just two full paper bags

    We are in a city where it is 20 cents to buy a plastic bag, so we’ve got plenty of strong cloth and hemp bags in our collection now. They are actually much more comfortable to carry groceries too since you can put them on your shoulder – and backpacks work particularly well!

    I understand now that it is more difficult to walk home with groceries in paper bags instead of the banned plastic ones. But I heard that they will be coming out with compostable plastic bags soon – those won’t be banned. I’m glad. The banned plastic bags are made using petroleum, don’t decompose and create a huge litter problem.
