Re: Plastic bag disposal

Just a note re veggies etc.: at least Coop now has slightly larger bags that are also a bit sturdier. Maybe they're not new at all, but I saw them for the first time a couple of weeks ago or so. They are free, and I normally take only one for all my fresh veggies and just put all stickers on the same bag, instead of using 2, 3 of the others. Sure you can do that with the usual bags as well, but they tend to tear quite easily. These new ones can be reused as they don't fall apart immediately.

Buy re-useable fabric veggie bags.

The lady in our Coop gives me a long, stern look when I put all the stickers on the same bag.

I realise they shouldn't be shunted up close to each other so it doesn't confuse the laser reader so I spread them about a bit but she still gives me a look that would sour milk.

I would understand if that happened at Aldi because they weigh there, having multiple types in one bag makes it just a tad difficult. But not at Coop.

Hi,
Over the year I have collected a LOT of plastic bags from packaging and shopping. Any suggestions on if there is a way to send them to recycle or just have to throw them in garbage?
thanks,

I read someone made rainproof balcony/outdoor cushions out of loose shopping plastic bags. Used them as fillings.
