Is there anyway that we can make plastic grocery bags better for the environment?

    Unfortunately, there is no simple answer to this question.  Let me start out by saying that the best solution is to not use them by bringing your own reusable bag with you to the store.  These can be simply made at home with scrap fabric and a needle and thread, or purchased at most stores for $1.

     If you must use plastic bags, make sure that you recycle them.  Most grocery stores have bag recycling containers at the front of the store.  Another way to make them less bad for the environment is to make them with 100% post consumer recycled content.  There is enough plastic recycling taking place that it is unacceptable for less than 100% recycled content, let alone no recycled content.
