^reminds me when I was a kid, they didn't have handles on the paper bags then and no plastic bags were available.  No made a fuss then

And I bet most families made a weekly shopping trip using their car. I know mine did.

We buy goldfish occasionally. Not sure how we would bring them home if not in a plastic bag?

Reusable fish transport square tote.

My first job back in the late 1960s was in a pet shop. Even then I think we used plastic bags for fish. Also remember getting free goldfish from Woodwards at Park Royal around 1960, in a plastic bag I'm sure. What did they do before that I wonder?

Mason Jars would work.....  and great for other uses.  Perhaps people will have to start bringing their own jars - and/or get a deposit back when they return the jar to the store (if the store provides the jar.)

^No.  We already have enough millennials drinking out of mason jars.  We don't need more of them :)

Hey, if that was directed at me...  I'm a millennial.  In age only.  I don't drink out of mason jars.

Our mason jars are occupied with jam. Hopefully a pickle jar would do, which I'd likely carry in a plastic shopping bag in case I drop it.

^you should start stocking up on your glass jars!  Pretty soon there will be a law where single use glass jars will be banned.  How do you get the peanut butter and jam home that used to come in a glass jar you ask?   Simple, one pants pocket for peanut butter and another pocket for jam! 

 

But wait you have 2 back pockets, a shirt breast pocket, plus pockets in your jacket.  Pretty handy when you hit the bulk bin isle!

The last two weeks I've made a couple  of clothing purchases at the Bay. Both times, though I had a cloth bag with me, it was already full, some of it sticky bakery stuff. Both times I had to walk out with my purchase wrapped in tissue, but in my hand. That is what bugs me, if I'm already spending $60, why should I have to spend extra for a single-use paper bag which will end up being disposed of!

You should see the look they give when you ask for part of their liver...
