Before lock-down we used to go to the local supermarket - usually once a day most days - taking with us our own shopping bags (like we used to do in Ye Olden Days when grandma used to crotchet shopping bags!)
Now we get a delivery once a week - but everything is delivered in plastic bags... We usually get about eight per delivery. I use a few to line the room bins but a huge surfeit is building up. I keep a "bag of bags" on the kitchen door but it's now stuffed full.
You can't give them back to the driver from the supermarket (due to potential infection) and this morning it is reported that the gov. is increasing the levy to 10p from 5p for bags bought in shops. I don't want to be contributing to plastic waste, but feel between a rock and a hard place. Any ideas, you lovely grans?
