i was just informed that our sanitation service will not pick up trash put into, say, walmart/target bags. you must use 'trash' bags..which means, not only are you not able to recycle/reuse the store bags, but you are required to buy more, bigger plastic bags to put those bags in.
isn't this just as wasteful as using plastic bags in the first place? i don't get it!

How is using a grocery bag for garbage in any way recycling/re-using it anyway? So it goes in the landfill holding things that will take even longer to biodegrade thanks to the protective layer of the grocery bag instead of going to the landfill crumpled up...sounds to me like it's making it worse, not better. If you were actually intending to be green or eco friendly you'd be using bags like this: http://www.cvs.com/CVSApp/catalog/shop_product_detail.jsp?skuId=718682&productId=718682&WT.mc_id=Shopping_Feed_Products_Google_Free_Listing, not adding more plastic to landfills in smaller doses.
