  •  Produce bags (4+ / 0-)

    work well too -- that's what my in-laws' friend used for her dog when they were still in the Bay Area (my in-laws' would save their bags for her).

    Getting harder to get plastic grocery bags around here anyway -- quite a few towns have banned them, and you have to pay 10 cents a bag for handled paper ones. I can understand the reasoning, but we used to donate quite a few handled bags (plastic and paper) to our church's food closet for use by their clients; most of them don't have the extra money to buy their own reusables, and might not always remember to grab them when heading downtown on the bus. (If some enterprising company wanted, they could supply handled paper bags printed with their logo...but so far no one's been that enterprising.)

    Lately we've had to acquire more handled paper bags because we use those to bring home mom-in-law's dirty laundry from the nursing center; far easier than having to mark every single item of clothing so it doesn't get lost in the shuffle. And it makes no sense to use the same bag to take back clean clothes that you used to bring home the dirty ones.
