grapebear, 5/ 1/2008 - 11:06pm "You don't have to be a hippie to bring your own bag - I've done it for years and I drive a gas-guzzling car, wear clothes made from synthetic materials, throw the paper and plastic out in the same can and could care less about the greenhouse effect - I just hate the cheap, crappy "post-consumer" recycled bags they love to hand you at the grocery store.
Pisses me off to be walking to the car and have the damn handle break right off the paper sack, dropping my beer and incesticide-ridden produce all over the asphalt!
Now a company that sounds like Ball-Mart has started selling canvas "BYOB" totes right beside the check-out - yet the cashiers can't seem to handle the concept. Every time I go thru the line I get exasperated sighs, dirty looks, or flat-out refusals to use my bag - they must get a bonus for every 300 plastic sacks they hand out. Last week I even had a lady insist on wrapping everything in plastic BEFORE putting it in my canvas bag because she "didn't want to get it dirty".
I realize that I'm not going to single handedly save the planet with my efforts, but it might keep some well-meaning bag boy from having his balls kicked in."
