STICK IT TO THE MAN: Reader Russ Pettit writes:
I live in one of those places where they have banned the use of plastic grocery bags.
They want to “train” us all to use reusable bags. I don’t like reusable bags. I never remember to put them in my car when I am going shopping. I also don’t think they are sanitary, as packages of meat tend to leak. More to the point, I don’t think plastic bags do any real harm to the environment.
This is all just about some people being able to tell other people how to live their lives. So anyway, I soved the problem with a quick visit to Amazon.
At the link below I bought a box of 5,000 bags just like the grocery store bags, at about half a cent per bag. I keep the box in my car and carry a few bags in when I shop. You should spread the word.
This is an excellent idea! These bags are available here for only $25.99 for 1000: T-Shirt Carryout Bags – 1000 ct.
