South Australia has banned the lightweight plastic shopping bag. We still get them at the checkout here, but I’m sure their days are numbered. When I’m good I remember to take these bags (pictured), or the even earthier calico bags I have hanging over doorknobs. But when I’m bad I “nip in” to the shops and end up with naughty bags. We use the naughty bags as bin liners. I may have raised this before – but the bin liner question is a real question. I have a house full of newspapers because I subscribe, so I could use biodegradable newspaper to line my bin. Or maybe nothing. Maybe it’s okay to throw naked garbage into the wheelie bin.
