The reality is that they're mostly being replaced by multi-use artificial materials. The question I'm left with is whether those artificial material bags use more or less energy on a per use basis than what they're replacing. Where we are, many plastic bags are recyclable (but what does that *really* mean???). What will happen to the multi-use replacement when it is no longer usable? People donate their damaged bags to me because I actually mend things, but eventually even I had to give up on some of them.

Thanks for your experienced post. Are the companies out there that offer non-dyed PLA?
Also, is it practical to grow your own PLA stock with home-grown plants & make your own PLA at a home-scale?
I'm both excited about this because it now means that almost every plastic item in my home can be recycled.
But I'm also immensely sad about it because it gives us an excuse to keep on using and making plastic - especially single-use plastic.
