No link, but a study was already done showing they're contaminated with nasty bacteria

This is my big concern. Most clerks I talk to hate people bringing in their bags. Raw meat juice, rotted fruit funk, just plain gunk. Then they set them on the vegetables while shopping after setting them on the meat shelf.

I dont want nasties from other people contaminating my stuff. They never wash them.

And yes, I know the carts and baskets are nasty. But at least it is usually in store funk and not from someone's mouse infested utility room.

Re: Save A Whale.


I pass on packaging and disposable bags whenever possible. Reusable is the preferred bag.

Re: Save A Whale.


At ALDI you have to bring your own bags. I always keep a stash of menards bags in my truck. They are nice bags, heavy plastic and big.

I use the cheaper plastic ones as garbage bags and for wrapping mini rollers covered in paint.

Re: Save A Whale.


I just get tired of the always changing rules.

We used to get paper, but it meant cutting trees, so they went to plastic to "save a tree".

Then they went to recycled paper to save a few more trees, but plastic still saved more.

Now I need to pay for a paper bag, which I'm sure the stores love, but can't get a plastic bag even if it is pouring down rain.

I dont want to carry old grimy cloth bags in my rig. I never know when I'm hitting the store, and have enough crap to carry already.

Re: Save A Whale.


Supermarkets around here are offering online ordering and you pick up or they deliver. All wrapped and taped for you. That saves a bag.
