It breaks my heart to see plastic bags in themouths and around the necks of wildlife. I have been using reuseable makret bags for about 6 months now almost exclusively. If a retailer offers paper bags I always opt for them for newspaper and mail recycling purposes. Some foodstore chains have the BEST reuseable bags. Up in the mid-atlantic, they are superfresh, a&p, pathmark (I think). They are from the Elizabeth Haub Foundation and feature the most beautiful pictures of landscapes and wildlife. THey rotate their selection with the seasons. They hold about 3 times the amount of groceries as regular shoppping sacks so it means less trips to and from the car to the house. I hope yo ucan find some in your area. They are only 99 cents a piecce and worth every one of those 99 pennies. Have a great weekend.
