I've been using cloth shopping bags for quite awhile and even though I thought I'd miss the small plastic ones that I reused for bathroom trash bags, litter disposal, and other things such as packing or toteing around muddy cleats, I really haven't. I saw posted somewhere a comment to that linked - useing cloth shopping bags but buying kitchen garbage bags -. I can't remeber the exact nature or wording of the comment but it definately triggered in me the thought that my next step would be eliminating trash bags. I think I'm ready to take that plunge. For the last couple of weeks though I've been trying to figure out what to use to put the garbage in. I've thought about just dumping it in the kitchen garbage can and then dumping that in the outside garbage can and washing the garbage cans after each unloading but that still seems to me that it would be very :yucky: Not actuallly sure since I've been chicken to try it. Maybe it would be fine. Is there anyone out there not useing plastic for garbage disposal at all??? What do you use????
