We use paper bags in our trash can and also to hold paper for recycling. I do often just forgo the bag if I am buying just one or 2 things. And when I go to the mall to shop, I do take my own shopping bag.

One solution for part of the wet garbage problem lies in a newfangled gadget called a garbage disposal. Is that why some of us here can do without plastic bags? I could easily find an apt. with a garbage disposal--at more than twice my current rent; and consider the energy usage to run the things.

I'm with you, CJ, on the kitty litter disposal--a leak-proof bag is needed. Walgreens here now gives out biodegradable bags but I've been unable to collect enough of them--guess I'll buy them.

I also bring my own "shopper" bags to dept. stores and grocery stores but the supermarket that delivers brings along an un-godly number of brown bags.
