some people think plastic bags are their god given right

2nd amendment
'and the right to have a plastic bag whenever we goddamn want one, ok?'

perhaps some of them are secret hoarders

cupboards stuffed to bursting with thousands of M&S carrier bags, some dating back to 1973

can't get down the corridor for bags

that sort of thing.

I am a little aggrieved by the carrier bag rationing of certain shops now....

I mean, what will the dog walkers use to poop scoop with and what will I shovel the mouse entrails spare wing and sparrow legs into after the cats have been dining on the spoils of their hunting forays ?

Clear plastic freezer bags just won't do in those circumstances and surely it's wasteful to buy nappy sacks for this purpose when you could re-cycle carrier bags.

use the bags you put your veg in at the supermarket

Carrier bags are a free source of biodegradable bin bags, why wouldn't I want one.

What I want to know is why dont we use brown paper bags like they do in the US?

You see it in all the tv shows, where they are carrying their food shopping in brown bags.

It makes sense.

Tis very true Hana.
I expressed a similar opinion once on MN and got flamed for it.

booge Thu 04-Sep-08 15:20:21

Sainsburys, Tesco, Somerfield all degrade, not sure about Marks though...

Our M&S charge 5p for a bag- do people really pay 5p per day rather than re-use? shock


Lilymaid Thu 04-Sep-08 15:49:31

In central London M&S seem happy to hand out the small size bags with handles for free, so sandwich buyers are safe from paying 5p for the larger bags.
I'm now buying bin liners for the first time for years. Biodegradable apparently, but they are made in Thailand!

Pannacotta Thu 04-Sep-08 15:55:16

Personally I find all the blooming packaging everything is wrapped in much worse than carrier bags, as shops seem very reluctant to do away with this.
Whats wrong with biodegradebale fruit/veg punnets?
Thats my rant.

I like the string bag you can get in M&S. Get loads in and it packs down to nothing in my handbag. Had a bit of a wobble when I realised that I have turned into my mum circa 1978...

DrAnthonyZybutz Thu 04-Sep-08 16:02:38

BROWN BAGS are worse ( acc to an Oprah i saw once)

DrAnthonyZybutz Thu 04-Sep-08 16:03:46

yes i mean the small bags - not evenuseful are they?
i am a great fan of the string bags - the pink and green ones
i knot it when empty adn place in handbag

PoorOldEnid Thu 04-Sep-08 16:06:39

I have my own bags

but I do a 'carrier bag' shop every now and again as the placcy bags are v useful

string bags cute but a PITA when full - bulge out at all angles and dont fit on the buggy handles
