I've been thinking about getting cloth bags, I believe I'll get moving. I don't throw away plastic bags, I hang on to them but I have hundreds of them now. Maybe I'll stuff a beanbag chair with them or stuff some pillows.

I hate them. But I'm not going to shop with a canvas bag, or 2 or 3, or 4. Bring back paper (good paper) bags.

edit:
I think they should be banned. just my opinion but some of those photos looked staged or edited.

Unfortunately it causes a larger carbon footprint to make paper than plastic.

Why use a bag in the first place?

1) Don't buy so much crap. and 2) carry it out in your hands or in the friggin' cart.

Thats actualy what I usualy do. I always ask for no or very few bags. I only use maybe 2 per week as garbage bags so I need a couple. But other than that I don't want a bag, just more to throw out.
