When I was stationed in Germany in the mid-60's, the German people had to take their own bags to the grocery store; I thought it was stupid then, and I still do.
This new push for us to do the same is just more of the pushing of America to be like the Europeans.
The day my grocery stop furnishing bags - plastic, or paper - is the day I'll find another store that does.
I think the bags are great, you can hang several on your arms to carry the groceries into the house, thus saving repetitive trips; we reuse them all of the time, for everything from kitty litter, to packing them for a trip to use for holding dirty clothes.
The reasons the greens are against all things plastic - bottles, sacks, etc., is that plastic is made from OIL...and we all know how much libs hate oil as they drive around in their BMW's.
The "GREEN" movement needs to go.

The problem is that local governments are mandating the change. Once the rules are in effect there’s no place to go.
