Bags, glorious bags. Believe me, I’ve got bags. Not under my eyes, mind you – these bags are in the trunk of my car.
I started the “collection” when I bought a couple of reusable bags for use when shopping at Aldi after they opened a store in our town…and then the state announced, in the interest of keeping plastic out of our landfills, plastic grocery bags would be subject to a 10-cent tax. I figured that though the state officials said the tax was enacted to combat the effects plastic was having on our environment, it was really about helping to bridge the looming gap in the state budget.
