No, Really? Reusable Bags Are Bad for You?

I've never liked the reusable bag concept. Well, I do like the concept, but not the poly something or other bags. I prefer paper, which is a renewable resource (plant more trees, make more jobs). In a pinch, I'll accept plastic, which are recyclable.

Here's another reason not to like the bags.

Edited to change the link. Apparently Yahoo videos have a short shelf-life.


  1. I like to sew my own from scraps out of my fabric stash.

  2. Wow! Thank you for the link. I only have two of the purchased bags, mostly I use the cloth tote bags I have used for years. *sigh* Green is not always better.

  3. Every time I click on the link it takes me to a video of a police chase...

  4. Fixed. Thanks for the heads-up.

  5. I'm still using two cotton canvas bags I bought back when we lived up in GR. Errr, 20+ years ago. I did have to replace the handles a couple of years ago, but they are still hauling groceries.

  6. Alwen, you win the "I Was Green Before Green Was Cool" Award!

    Cotton bags are good--you can wash them every so often. And replace the handles, if you're really handy that way.
