Re: netting on the freeloaders
- Its definitely easier using a reusable bag, they seem to stay in the
freeloader better than the pastic ones they give you at checkout.
However, either way I find I have to fiddle with the top drawstring
when doing a big shop.
- I try to ask for the "old school" paper bags whenever I don't have my
cloth bags with me. They each hold as much as several plastic bags and
are easier to manage because they sit more upright in the freeloaders.
Two or more full paper bags on each side of the Xtracycle hold as much
as a half-dozen or more flimsy plastic bags.
When done with grocery these paper bags see a myriad of uses in the home
before they are at their end-of-life. Usually they become handy
collectors for paper recycling because they themselves can all go out
with the recycled paper in the blue (black for paper actually) box. If
they become torn or otherwise damaged they become shredded bedding for
the vermicompost or end up as mulch for the back yard garden.
