If we could live well without plastic bags before they appear in the market why can`t we do without them now. Make the old habit of carrying shopping bags with u in your car, bikes or in hands. What you are going to lose? Rather you are going to gain much much.. I keep 2-3 bags in my car always.

Plastic bags work quite well for choking the crap out of some pice of anal wipe that so despartly needs it. Paper tends to tear.

It's really simple to carry your own recycled bags to the store. If you forget, you can ask for paper. How easy, and how considerate to Mother Earth. C'mon, just say "no" to plastic.

Yea for cloth bags! I just carry an old Vera Bradley handbag if I'm only picking up a couple of things -- with another foldable vinyl or cloth bag tucked inside in case something pleads with me to take it home -- could be anything from marshmallows for my hot cocoa to fresh organic kale for my tasty, crunchy, salty, kale chips. Yum!

And when you buy your own bags, make sure they're NOT the ones made of plastic sold at places like Publix or Walmart! You can find great burlap bags at https://truegreen.alice.com/products?tag_id=367&per_page=60.

We made the change from paper to the plastic. Why not from the plastic to the forever bags? works for me.

what would you suggest bio hazard medical garbage be put in? Just curious most paper and cloth leak,yuk.
the bad thing about the clothes one is how contaminated they get then we have the problem of poisoning people children,elderly adults. I do like paper bags if they are not flimsy. plastic anything can stop up oceans,land .what does Hawaii use in place of the plastic bags? it is annoying when other peoples plastic bags fly in the air and get stuck in our neighborhood trees.

I live in Long Beach where Aug 1 2011 a single-use plastic bag ban began. In ~July 2012 Los Angeles is going to start phasing out as well. This is a Great start, but Not ENOUGH! PS I was wrong on the Quiz, I didn't know Hawaii had a statewide ban. Hooray for Hawaii.

Reusable bags only I say. No paper no plastic. Be responsible and get bags you will use time and time again.

I agree... If we are just going to throw them into landfills and never make but one time use from them they should be banned.
