Here's my public service message for the week: Please use recyclable bags when you shop! I'm trying hard to do this. I carry about 4 of them in my car and most of the time forget to bring them in, but yesterday I remembered at Kroger. The bagboys still look at you kind of strangely, but if we all do this it will become the norm.
When we were in Australia back in 2005, you had to bring your own bags -- none available at all -- and bag your own groceries. We could cut out the bagboy salaries and get that money back to the consumer, no?
Okay, I'm off my high-horse now!
