Anyone have an alternative to this? I guess I could always use a plastic trash bag and then just use it next after getting home. Double duty, so to speak.
I do the same thing now. We picked a bunch up one day, the good strong kind that can be washed (they have a removable hard plastic bottom for when you wash them). They are pretty tough and hold up well so far even when piled high with heavy stuff.
Anything that might leak I also have wrapped in plastic bags. When I get home I wash them as I have dogs and they are good for the doggie waste bin.
Not a perfect solution but anything that serves double duty is better than single use and toss. Also our local grocery stores will take back plastic bags even if torn for recycling, so if we start to accumulate to many we take some back with us.
