I have about a half dozen of those 99¢ bags that Wegmans sells for groceries. You know, the kind that are supposed to cut down on all of the plastic bags. When I first started using them, I kept forgetting to bring them to the store with me, so every time I went grocery shopping I would buy a new one, and now I have way too many. You can fit a lot of groceries into each bag, and I am just one person, so I very rarely need more than one bag per trip.
I wonder how many plastic bags I have to not use in order to make up for the fact that eventually, even if I use these sturdy bags for the rest of my life, they too will end up in a landfill?
