I'm a Walmart shopper and they're not good at providing the paper option, so I usually get the plastic. But I would rather have paper. Didn't someplace in Arizona ban plastic bags recently?
Well, since I normally forget the BYOB in the car, I go for plastic because we use them for garbage bags and cat poop bags.
I usually use plastic. The places I go never give me an option. Usually if I buy wine or something, they'll put the bottle in a paper bag and then put that bag in plastic.I have fabric bags but rarely remember to use them. Maybe the plastic in the bags are causing memory loss.
I'm s total BYOB girl...When I remember. When I don't, I get paper.
BYOB, thank you.
3GK: It is true...a lot of places don't actually ask anymore, they just default you to plastic. I don't know about AZ., but I do know a few states or more local governments are working on it.One for Plastic.NoRegrets: Yeah, they do have uses after their inital one. If we don't ever get them when we shop, we just end up buying bags for the little trashcans...Two for Plastic.Tara: I have a LOT of my own cloth bags I have accumulated and when I forget them I get irritated with myself. You may be on to something with the memory loss thing :-)Three for Plastic.Churlita: There is something I really like about paper bags. I think they remind me of my childhood.One for B.Y.O.B.C4C: Aside from the green aspects, I love how much I can stuff into my cloth bags! You're welcome :-)Two for B.Y.O.B.Everyone: Looks like everyone has more than one preference, when it comes down to it...or they have their usual and their back-up. Keeps things interesting! So far, I have it at 3 for plastic, 2 for B.Y.O.B, when figuring what we ened up with primarily. Anyone else want to bag it? It's not too late!
How many places even offer paper bags anymore? I bring my own most of the time, but occasionally forget. But I use the plastic bags for trash, so I need them once in a while.
Secret: The still offer them pretty much everywhere here...maybe it is a CA thing. I had no idea.Three for B.Y.O.B Tie score between Plastic and BYOB! And maybe paper was not given a fair chance, as I didn't know they weren't offered most places :-)
Everywhere I go shopping they pretty much only have plastic and some places have really horrible bags. I prefer paper myself, because I use them to put my old newspapers in so I could get them to recycling. I'm saying paper.
AlienCG: I think paper bags are so useful! They tend to be quite sturdy...and who doesn't need another paper bag book cover? One for Paper. Finally! :-D
Only a few selected stores have paper bags. If my shop is better planned I would take my BYOB bags, I do a lot of impulse grocery shopping though and don't have the foresight to carry my bags with me. I would have to say plastic but I try and re-use them for other things.
FW: I mean to always have my cloth bags with me...but don't. I try not to accumulate too many plastic bags, even if I intend to use them for something, because it makes me feel like a hoarder :-) Too much TV...You make 4 for Plastic, putting it in the lead here.
