I have recently started to fill plastic bottles with plastic wraps, I think this is a great idea, at least if a plastic bottle is going to be recycled, all the wraps will recycle as well, and they won't be everywhere in the fields as wenusually see them.

It's great to hear about all the creative and intrinsic ways people are reusing bags!

Even in a small town in Honduras I still use my "reduce/reuse/recycle" bags! The cashiers all know me now and ask for my bags before starting to bag the food! pretty funny!

Originally they were giving paper bags at the grocery store and than they switched to plastic bags. Now they sell reusable bags.

We take cloth bags to the stores with us. Even so, We still end up with a lot of plastic. We use it as waste can liners, As packaging when shipping, at our vegetable stand and recycle the rest.

I like Daire's comment. We should have a surcharge on plastic bags.

Some places in New Zealand have a surcharge, but if people need carry bags they pay it anyway. The price of the plastic bag needs to be prohibitive if this is going to make any kind of difference to the amount of plastic bags entering the waste dumps.

In Canada many businesses charge a nickel for a plastic bag. This has helped get people to carry their own reusable bags. In the U.S., when I bring my own bags many times clerks ignore them or make snide comments.

After reading this i will think twice before i throw out another grocery bag, it's so easy to return them to the store... As I recall don't most stores have a big box at the entrance? Maybe more states should impose a deposit system.

yes John and sometimes we that like the environment need to be advocates for same and not let someone else do the "heavy lifting" take a positive effort in your state to see if a law could be enacted to do what u suggest
