AND consider this ... if everyone switches to personally owned cloth shopping bags (which appears to be the idea since they want to tax the heck out of paper too), the amount of water necessary to wash said bags, which will get very dirty very quickly I guarantee

Actually, they don't. I've been taking some to the market every week now for a year and I've never had to wash them. My biggest problem with them is that baggers tend to fill them like a paper bag and not put in enough.

Actually, mine do. Milk leaks, eggs break, they get set on a wet floor, etc. Our baggers overfill them and I've had handles break because of the weight.

Costco and Sam's Club's idea of using boxes works to a point, but then what when you get them home? The point is taxing people to force them to go green isn't a viable solution.
