That would certainly help (packaging revision, that is). Tho I know that the boy and I could do a lot more about reducing the amount of rubbish we end up with each week.

In England, we recycle food waste. You can wrap it in newspaper and put it in a special bin. This reduces the yukky stuff in the main bin, so theoretically you could do without plastic bags. All very well, but the bin men are on strike at the moment and the maggots are having a field day with the food scraps. We also have a recycling bin and a garden waste bin. In fact, half the garden seems to be taken up with bins. The only real answer is for the big corporations to revise their packaging.

I guess we're going to have to do something similar to what you're all doing - buying large bin liners and trying to use just the one each week. So, doesn't this imply that (free) supermarket bags are somehow more evil than the ones we have to buy?

It took us a while to get to this solution, but it works for us... Every room has a wastebasket, but only dry stuff is allowed in it, and no food wrappers, etc. In the kitchen, we keep the gigantoid garbage can with the liners we buy at the store. Once a week, on garbage day, we carry all the wastebaskets to the big kitchen garbage bag and empty them out. So we really don't need the plastic shopping bags.

It just means that you are not throwing away all your aditional bags.
I keep on hand a roll of 4 gallon bags just incase I get sick. Grocery store bags have little holes.
yuck

We have the same dilemma - I very diligently bought enviro bags ages ago (which we use for all shopping) but now we have virtually 0 plastic bags. We buy bin liners for the kitchen cause it's a large bin, and I find that supermarket bags get all leaky etc whereas the proper ones are more durable. (I kid myself that actually they're kind of biodegradeable (I think I read it somewhere but maybe they're not...)). But it's quite annoying not having any plastic bags for occasions which arise all the time. When we stop into the supermarket on the way home from work we get the occasional plastic bag which I horde up for a special occasion. 'tis quite sad really.
