Target Moving from Paper to Plastic...
This Everlasting Bag is designed for at least 125 uses. This bag is made from Low Density Polyethylene with a minimum thickness of 2.25 mil. It contains at least 80% Post-Consumer Recycled material and can be recycled at a participating store. This bag is ordinance compliant and does not contain lead, cadmium, or any other metals in toxic amounts. To clean, rinse bag with liquid dish soap on inside of the bag and hang upside down to dry. This bag is made in Germany by Papier-Mettler and distributed by Mettler Packaging LLC.
While I applaud Target for their efforts to "go green", I personally will miss the paper bags as I used them all the time for my kitchen recycling - filling them up before hauling them out to the side yard recycling bins. And while Target's intent (125 uses!) is great, I wonder how many people will actually re-use these bags - ?
