    So, what's it going to be? Paper or plastic?

    I bought 10 of those reusable ones. You know, the ones that probably cause more pollution in their making than using paper or plastic does in their disposal.

    Raw meats go in plastic. Always. I use paper when I run out of bags for the paper recycling, plastic for everything else when my reusables are all filled up. Plastic bags gets reused as poopy bags for the dog.

    I have purchased the reusable bags, with the grocery chain ads printed on each side, and they stay comfortably nested in the back of my gas guzzler as I request paper. Burn a tree for me.

    You should use them. They don't tip over in the car, spilling everything all over the place. Great to pack stuff in when you go on vacation too.

    Eat out! There's no need to carry stuff home in bags.
