“Starting in July 2016, grocery retailers could only provide reusable plastic bags, which many stores already offer at a fee”

I use a reusable type bag when I go shopping at Aldi’s (since they don’t carry any bags of their own). HOWEVER, I only use it for things like canned goods, dry package stuff like crackers and so on. When it comes to things like meat, seafood, and even some produce, whatever I use is one-and-done. Not worth the risk of later cross-contamination, IMHO.

With liberals, your life is not important.

You can actually re-use existing plastic bags!

Exactly, studies have already shown a high risk of bacteria contamination from the use of the “re usable” plastic bags because people don’t think about or take the time to wash them. I believe that this is just pushing dollars into the hands of manufacturers making wildly overpriced goods from recycled plastic. Have you noticed the outrageous price of anything made from recycled plastic?

Something to think about....if the bags are carrying bacteria, a contaminated box of crackers would infect your hands as you open it to get to the crackers and eat them.

The plastic grocery bags used to be fairly strong. Now I notice half of them are breaking apart by the time I get my groceries home. I wonder if they’re deliberately making them this way so people will switch to reusables.
