When you go shopping, do you use re-usable calliko bags? In Australia, we are trying to reduce the number of plastic bags, so; we have to bring our own paper bags or any other type of re-usable bags. In your country/region, are you doing the same?

May sound terrible - but no, I don't use a cloth bag when I go to the grocery. For one thing, I have no car and have to walk to and from the store. I have some metal clips I use to clip together 8-10 bags on each, which makes it easier for me to carry them the 1/2 mile home. But on the other hand, I do "recycle" them in a way - I use them for trash bags (even though they are small than regular trash bags). That way I don't feel so guilty about not having used a cloth bag when I went shopping. Does anyone else do this or am I the only weirdo?

It depends on where I am going.. or what I am buying.. and how many bags I have at home or not. I often reuse plastic bags are garbage bag fillers in all the small garbages around the house, or use them to collect seeds or plants, or herbs in as I let them dry... If I have enough at home then I will use a cloth bag or my backpack.. to put the item in, or they will put a special sticker on the item.. so we do not have to have them in bags at all. - DNatureofDTrain
