posted originally from: TheKitchnWe really like using our own bags at the grocery store - not only is this good for ecological and economical reasons, but the bags are also easier to pack and carry. But it seems counter-productive to then buy plastic liner-bags for our trashcans.
A quick internet search didn't reveal many solutions. Eco-friendly and biodegradable trash liners are available, but tend to be fairly cost-prohibitive for us (especially as compared to free plastic grocery bags!). Unfortunately, the Go-Green plastic bags we talked about in our earlier post still aren't very easy to find.
One website suggested forgoing liners all together and dumping the contents of household garbage bins directly into the outside trashcan. This might work for our office and bathroom trash, but might not be so hot for the kitchen garbage.
Are you facing this problem too? What do you think?
