Do you support banning plastic bags or charging extra for bags? Do you use paper, plastic or canvas when you shop? I usually take my own bags that I purchased from www.guidedogs.com. I don't see many other people bringing their own bags.

I take my own bags that I have bought or have been given to me, I think if people were charged more for bags they would purchase reuseable bags and remember them too,

I reuse mine ofr poop scooping and litterbox cleaning. I do get sick of seeing them blowing around, so if they were banned I would just buy little plastic ones for the dirty jobs. A ban wouldn't bother me. Charging would be okay too, but where would that money go and what would it be used for? If it's not used for some kind of environmental improvement, it's pointless.

I have a couple canvas bags. I use them when I'm making a small grocery trip. The discounts are a great incentive.

The Kroger stores (Dillons, Gerbes) will give you a credit/discount if you bring your own bags to the store. That's a great incentive!

I bought canvas bags to bring groceries home in. I think they are great...much better than plastic and better for the earth. I think it would be great if everyone used them

I use my own reusable bags and I think other people should. I don't think the plastic bags should be banned though because people use them for other things like garbage liners or crafts.

We are 100% for it.
We bought the canvas bags and the insulated ones from the dollarstore and always keep them in the truck. The insulated ones are great for keeping the frozen items cold especially during the summer. When ever we go into any store, we make sure to grab them. The only thing I have to say I still find the plastic ones good for is when Im changing the litter. Without them, what do you do? Wish I could come up with an alternative as well as the green garbage bags..

I agree with Whitney. I have tons of bags that I use and if I could only remember to put them in my car! I have had to run from the store to grab them in my car if I remember to put them there. I think we simply need to get into the habit. Old habits are hard to break!
