The move is very expensive. I live on Kauai, and I have bought these reusable cloth bags to replace the plastic bags I am used to.

The paper bags are not good because it is easier to get roaches in your home.

Of course, when you make such a move like this, it isn't going to be free. The plastic shopping bags of today are bio-degradable, so they do not pollute anything. Not only that, but the refuse stations biggest problem is NOT plastic, but paper.

Shoppers in Europe have been using their own cloth bags for years! This is what we call..."common sense". It's too bad the USA hasn't been doing this...

I have no objections at all - what we see now is problem after problems, and problem after problems never end, cuz what's good to someone is not good to the others. To me, I better go back and use my samoan basket [ato launiu] the one that make from the coconut leaves. It's strong, good for shopping, easy to carry everywhere you go. Put your lundry, carry a child, take your school supplies, put your trash, etc. You can make your own any size you wish that fit your needs. No money need to get one - it's free to get a Samoan Basket. Let me know and I'll prepare one for you.
This kind never pollute your environment.
