    when i was in seattle they used the reusable bags, and even had a recycle program that came with the waste managment... here in mississippi we actually have to take the recyle waste to drop off points that accept certain things- like kroger or walmart for plastic, the schools take old ink cartridges for fund raisers, and then the aluminum goes to the "can man". just wish we all would go to the reusable bags, cause they are better over time for the environment.. until hey free garbage bags- woo hoo!

    I do this all the time. I still buy grocery bags, but only to use in the kitchen. I use plastic grocery bags all throughout the house as garbage bags and hang them on the back of doors. That way they are easy to access too! When they are full I just toss them in the big bin outside.

    I used to do this.

The grocery stores in my area have recently adopted a new policy where they charge five cents per grocery bag. They justify it by saying that it's all in an effort to 'save the environment', and encourage people to purchase the resuable grocery bags at 99 cents each.
