No. I sometimes reuse them, but mostly I just throw them away.

No, I re-use them if I ever get them. But I normally use eco-bags when shopping.

Ya use em for small trash can bags.

I usually use them as rubbish bags.

I don't use them at all. I take re usable cotton bags with me when I go shopping.

My household 1, avoids them. 2, reuses them. 3, recycles them. From what I hear, plastic bags are so cheap it's easier to make more than it is to recycle them, so while recycling keeps them out of landfills, it's not the best option.

The Shop Rite near my house has a big bin near their entrance where you can drop them off, so I take them there.

I use canvas ones. If I get plastic ones, I usually use them in the waste baskets. I suppose I would recycle them if I had enough of them not covered in trash.

I use them for small trash can liners an general disposable bags. I recycle about 75% of the bags I get from shopping, the rest I save to reuse.

I rarely recycle anything. Though my parents do

I try to remember to bring my reusable cotton bags every time I go shopping. But I forget sometimes (ok, a lot of times).

I use plastic bags to line my small trash cans, and I use paper bags to line the bottom of my birds' cage. Paper bags are also just useful to have around if you need to carry junk and stuff.

If I somehow end up with a plastic bag it's used as a trash can liner until it's no longer useable.
5 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Thursday 12/20/12 - 2:01:17 PM EST (GMT-5)
I use them for trash liners, because I'm often too lazy to get enough garbage liners.

5 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Sunday 12/23/12 - 6:14:55 PM EST (GMT-5)
I don't recycle them in the sense that I take them to some place to be recycled.

I just reuse them myself.

Reduce, reuse, recycle

Doesn't that mean reusing is better?

I tend to re-use them. Trash liners, dog bags, etc.
