When you are getting ready to go on vacation, you pack your luggage with everything you will need. Your clothes and personal items all have to fit inside your bags. You do the same thing when you go to the grocery store. Your food and supplies are packed into a bag for you to carry with you when you leave. The difference is the quality of the bags you use.
Can you imagine trying to take a vacation with all of your things stored in disposable plastic bags? They probably wouldn’t survive the rigors of air travel without ripping. Your clothes and toothpaste would end up all over the inside of the plane. A plastic grocery bag is no less problematic. Nearly everyone has had to pick up their food after it has fallen out of a ripped bag.
Many are starting to make the switch from the disposable plastic grocery bags offered by the stores to their own personal reusable bags. There are a number of advantages. They are durable and less costly in the long run. They also present fewer ecological problems for wildlife. The best part is that reusable grocery bags are like a set of personal luggage. They are customizable for your specific needs.
