Queercents » Making Peace with Plastic Grocery Bags

  • I thought this was a good post. Good links including one to a pretty good podcast. If anyone else knows other uses, please comment. – post by telecommatt
John Roach at National Geographic News writes, “Plastic bags are so cheap to produce, sturdy, plentiful, easy to carry and store that they have captured at least 80 percent of the grocery and convenience store market since they were introduced a quarter century ago.”

  • We use plastic bags in our smaller garbage cans instead of buying more garbage bags. To store them we keep empty kleenex boxes and stuff them full of plastics bags. Then we can pull them out one at a time as we need them. – post by telecommatt
