What do you use your plastic grocery bags for once you have your groceries home from the store?


I try to recycle mine into crocheted rugs or "pooper scooper" bags. I'm curious, what do you do with yours?

    Plastic bags require a very small amount of oil to produce and they create jobs. Paper bags are made from a renewable resource, but a lot of it still ends up in the landfill.

    Organic material in landfills should decay in time, but it takes a lot of that. The typical one lacks the microbes and oxygen to break it down.

    After you fill the paper bag with ashes or kitty litter--what do you do with it? I imagine you throw it away and it ends up in the landfill. I need to check--knew this years ago, but I think it takes more energy to make a paper bag than plastic bags.

    I buy a lot of groceries (I have five kids!). I seldom wash my re-usable bags - only if something soils them.
