    Very cute!! I like this style of bag, so practical!

    I should make some of these...my area has a ban on plastic bags and a restriction on single-use bags in general that starts next month and I am way behind on my plans to make myself a bunch of bags! These would be great for that!

    a restriction on single-use bags
    Can't use plastic but can toss a bag after one use?
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.
    Being cheap is not a badge of honor.
    My heroes are working people, paying their own way, taking care of their children and being decent human beings.

    came out much nicer and more colorful than a store bought one.
    Now you can go into the business!!!
    Bet she loves it more too
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Well, the whole point is to discourage using disposable/single-use bags of any sort, and to stop the use of plastic bags in particular as much as possible. So they've put a restriction on both paper and plastic bags that are not designed to be used multiple times. This means that the paper bags at the grocery store are classified as "single use" bags and they are also included in the restriction.

    In fact the only "single use" bags that will still be allowed is going to be paper bags. Stores can still give them out, but they have to charge a minimum per-bag fee. I think it's 15 cents per bag minimum, and stores can charge more if they want to (and some are already charging this or more, even though the law isn't in place yet).

    Restaurants, I think, can still use plastic for to-go food, and I think thrift shops can re-use paper and plastic grocery bags without charging a fee as long as they were donated (used) bags and not newly purchased bags....there's some weird clauses to it and I don't know all the rules yet.

    You can still bring in your OWN "single-use" plastic bags, or paper bags to reuse and that's fine. But most stores won't be able to give out or sell plastic bags anymore, unless it's a reinforced bag designed to be used multiple times. (A tote bag, in other words.)

    It's all a little inconvenient but I think it's a good idea overall. I'm already in the habit of bringing reusable bags to the grocery store; I just have to remember now to bring them to the fabric store, the clothes store, etc. and make sure I have a good stash of bags in my car at all times!

    We've been using cloth bags for years, and most shops charge for a plastic bag now and it's $.25. Just remember to wash your bags regularly so you aren't harbouring germs from vegie dirt etc. At first it was a pain in the neck... now we're so used to it, we don't think twice.
