Very happy to see Food Town/ Stx using biodegradable shopping bags. Wish all the stores would switch.

They are also much stronger than the plastic--no need for double bagging

If it's biodegradable plastic disposable shopping bags, I heard they do not actually biodegrade, they shred into smaller pieces and if wildlife accidently consumes them it blocks their digestive system and they die. Heard it on NPR radio.

Don't know which bags they may be using, but this article was interesting...

I bring my own cloth bags as well.
