why should I bring a bag to the Supermarket or any other place for that matter, I'm shopping spending money to support the economy and now I have to bring my own bag, I don't think so.Let the stores supply what ever material bag is needed.

Plastic bags do so much harm to the environment for the couple of minutes, sometimes seconds that they serve a purpose. Carry a reusable bag, backpack or just walk out with your purchase in your hand. Every little bit counts.

The production of plastic bags uses non-renewable resources, depleting the ecosystems from which they are derived. The demand for plastic bags creates air pollution and increases our dependency on foreign suppliers. Every time we find we can no longer go in the ocean, swim in our lakes or drink our water we’re paying the price with our freedoms. It breaks our spirit to see our fellow man devastate the future of our earth and the beautiful things it manifests. It leaves us breathless to watch our peers become complacent. We are better than this! ---Much effort brings little change and big pockets are never full enough but nothing great ever came from inaction. Be the change, we are enough. Reinvent the system.

I am tired of seeing so much waste generated by plastic bags. I haven't taken one for years and finally the cashiers at the stores I frequent have gotten on my side and remember not to give them to me. I carry a reusable bag with me everywhere in the world as should evey person alive. Go to Goa to see what happens to the bags on the beaches of North Goa which used to be beautiful and now are filled with the waste plastic bags generate.
