First of all, let me say that the reusable bag that Tricia and Lauren displayed on yesterday's "Issues 8" program is awesome. I hope to get my hands on one of them.
Proponents of disposable plastic bags say that the bags have many uses afterwards. But the use for them that people usually bring up is that of small trash can liner. I think more people would get on board with reusable tote bags if we just find a way to meet their mini trash can dilemma.
