I don’t know about you, but I have been noticing all the plastic bags on the side of the road littering our beautiful landscape. I try, as I sure you do, to take the reusable bags to the grocery. I am also trying to not take bags anywhere I can, so we can cut back on this mess. I am avid birder and often birds catch my eye in a tree and I look up only to find it is a bag. In the supermarket I use my cloth bags that I wash every time if I put meat in them. Unfortunately the checkout person still puts meat in plastic or looks at me like I am crazy to put meat in a fabric bag. It is a battle. I always just throw them in the wash with the towels and it is no big deal. I get it, some people come in with filthy bags and the checkout people are gaging. But seriously, we need to think about these bags in the landfill just for our convenience. Buy some nice bags that you are happy to have in your car and make sure they are washable.
