On the subject of plastic and using them for shopping, what does everyone use in their kitchen trash cans? Do you use plastic bags to line them? I use my shopping bags, small I know but its recycling in a sense.

Plastic bags are bad for environment, but they are easy to use, economical and light weight. I don't use new plastic bags in the kithcen. I store the shopping bags and reuse it. It's a small contribution to a good environment.

Groceries I buy for my home I only use canvas.

Since I work for a childcare center we shop at Smart and Final for the weekly supplies. I take those plastic and paper bags home and use them for my kitchen (and bathroom trash for that matter).

We use the plastic shopping bags to line the cans; tying off the plastic bags by the handles when they're full. We use the paper bags for recyclables. When the paper bag is full we dump the recyclables directly into the waste wheeler and reuse the paper bag until it no longer stands alone.

As far as I can remember, being a kid at the time going shopping with my mum, plastic bags were mostly unheard of. We took shopping nets or woven baskets or bags to carry the goods and managed quite well. I wonder how we became so dependent on plastic bags within only about two decades. Why is it that we continue using these plastic bags just for our convenience and selfishly ignore what these masses of unyielding plastic can do to our environment?

I also use the plastic shopping bags for rubbish. I think it is a waste to buy plastic bags just to throw them out.

In Germany customers have to pay for plastic bags in stores to discourage them from buying them.

The environment is made up of systems, cycles, and specialized relationships between living and non-living elements. When everything’s working the way it should be, all the living organisms within the environment, including humans, are healthy and thriving.Please avoid using plastic bags.

I also use my shopping bags for the garbage. I also wash them, in the sink with hot water and lot and lots of soap and use them to cover food in the refrigerator. another few great ideas: use them to line paint trays and protect paint brushes, us them when shipping or packing fragile things like dishes or take them back to the store and reuse them again and again.
