use those "earth friendly" reusable bags at the grocery store? I do all of the time now. Not because they are earth friendly, but because they are just better. I can pack 12 of those plastic bags worth of groceries into just 4 of these. They are stronger and easier to carry. I love them.

When I remember to bring them, because I also get 5 cents off for each one, and 5 cents is 5 cents.

I usually insist on virgin paper bags, made from the pulp of ancient redwood trees and printed in red dye #2.
Link Posted: 3/29/2009 12:19:08 PM EST
IO'll start using them when they give them away.
Link Posted: 3/29/2009 12:20:51 PM EST
No I use my Larue one to take stuff to work

I use the plastic ones to wrap up food and for trashbags.

I insist on triple-plastic bags, which I burn when I get home (for EXTRA pollution!).

This... except I insist that mine use a glue made from animal proteins & that the paper was processed using arcenic

I would, but i'm afraid people would think I was a hippie.

For an extra couple of bucks you can get those fur lined.

But it takes more energy to make a paper bag than a plastic one. Much more...

You want the ones made by child labor. Those...are the best.

One more example of people trying to capitalize on the "green" movement.
Link Posted: 3/29/2009 12:37:43 PM EST
they give out the cloth/fabric totes out like candy at trade shows.... I've got my fair share of 'em..

lots stronger than those POS plastic bags

They were very popular in our great grandparents and grandparents time. We just got lazy and used the ones at the store. You had to bring bags with you in the really old days. I am not sure when paper bags and then plastic became common. I know we used paper in the 70' and then plastic in the 80's.

I'd like to know how many people who use the cloth shopping bags at Wal-Mart get singled out for a 'receipt check' as they're leaving?

If you mean the avatar I got it out of a thread posted here. I am not a member at 4chan.

yeah most the time we use our bags........my personal favorite is my LaRue UDE bag
Link Posted: 3/29/2009 12:53:33 PM EST
We use them, they hold way more than plastic bags. Although we do reuse plastic bags for emptying out the cat litter box and stuff like that. They are very useful if you ever go to Aldi's or Sams club.

I only use them to carry strips of rubber and aerosol cans to the fire pit in the back yard.

I hire illegals to bring my groceries home. I insist that they do so in an unlicensed and uninsured diesel vehicle that leaks oil.

My tortillas never make it home.

I haven't been in a grocery store in 10 years

The little lady does the grocery shopping. I'll recommend these to her.

I only use these bags when picking up Manatee Steaks with Spotted Owl Sauce.
Link Posted: 3/29/2009 1:38:29 PM EST
No, I need the plastic ones for picking up my dogs poop.

canvas bag = lunch sack for work
plastic bags = doggie doo and pussy cat poo + packing material for shipping stuff
paper bags = backing for *repair center* NRA rifle targets + good for firestarting and singeing the down feathers off fowl after plucking

Haven't gotten a gaggle of canvas bags for grocery shopping yet but mebbe someday.

No, I even throw my empty 6 pack rings in the lake so ducks can get them caught around their neck and drown. Hell, I even like to burn tires and pour my burnt motor oil on the ground.
