Where are you getting plastic bags? I have not seen plastic bags anywhere in Western Washington for a long time now. It's paper, reusable, or that other kind of recyclable plastic like you can get at Walmart.

Target, Safeways in Shoreline (not Seattle)

I assume they are the newer, thicker kind?

Yes, they could be (and I do) reuse them at least once or twice.

Gotcha. I was thinking you meant the older, flimsy plastic ones (like the kind Bruce mentioned above) that were everywhere before a couple years ago.

I had been recycling those thicker plastic bags. Maybe I got that wrong.

The Renton Fred Meyer also has thick plastic bags.  My car was stuck in the shop for three weeks, and I left my reusable bags in the car.  I had stopped sending my plastic bags back to recycling for years in anticipation of a plastic bag ban, so that I could and still do have a supply of small trash bags.

I should start stockpiling. I was thinking about tossing a bunch of bags, but I might as well keep them for use year down the road when they're banned.

I wonder what the Spirit Jet Blue decision will mean for Albertsons Kroger merger?

That's what Iíve been doing since plastic bags were banned a few years ago.
