Fellow Curblier bsgilf posted a question yesterday that was of concern to me a couple of months ago. It all started with IKEA charging for their shopping bags and San Francisco passing an ordinance requiring retailers to use eco-friendly bags. Always answering ‘paper’ when the paper/plastic question arose, I was looking for sturdy shopping bags of the same size as a quality paper grocery bag. In my search, I found ECOBAGS, which has a perpetual bag for every occasion. Included in their selection are hemp, organic, recycled, and canvas bags as well as something called the ‘E-Shopping Systems’. If price is an issue, check out the very economical non-woven polypropylene GreenBag® collection; they start at 3 bucks a pop.
