Most every store here has both paper and plastic. You're more likely to find a store that doesn't offer plastic than you are to find one which doesn't offer paper. This is North Idaho, where the main industry is the timber industry*, and there is a big paper mill 50 miles away. Paper is at least as popular as plastic.

*Although we are getting a tremendous amount of transplants moving in the last couple years, many who either don't work or work from home.

You can still get paper bags to put your groceries in on the East coast. Maybe I live close to a paper loving town, not sure.

Offer nothing but paper bags here. No plastic. We usually use cotton bags.

What the heck is vision? I don't think I've ever heard of it.

Could you please explain what you mean, Boco? The smoke screen is making it blurry around here.

I do always use paper bags rather than plastic at the grocery store.


You bring your own paper bags, or do grocery stores in Idaho still offer them? I've not seen a grocery store on the east coast offer paper bags in over 20 years.

I work at a farm stand and we've been trying to use up 5000 paper bags the owners used to cover tomatoes with during a frost this spring. 100% of the customers look at the paper bags, then ask for plastic. I tell them paper is all we have. 80% of them forego the bag and make 2-3 trips to the car, grumbling about us not having plastic, rather than using a paper one. I don't get it.



they use the plastic then gripe about "big oil" they wear oil , the sleep on oil , the put oil in their cars , their carpet is oil , their siding is oil but because it looks like different things they just don't see it as oil. after all to them only your truck uses oil


seeing a lot more hemp being grown here , I don't know if it is for the fiber and the CBD or just the CBD

almost every grocery in WI i have been to even whole foods and the super hippie co-ops that I have seen offer paper here , they may charge you a dime or quarter for a paper bag some don't even have plastic just paper and it costs a quarter, or plenty of re-usable you can buy for a dollar or two.

the one exception I can think of is Walmart has only plastic bags


America only has one issue, we have a Responsibility crisis and everything else stems from it.

AND: Don't forget all the paper and foam trash from fast food.
