I don't want to accept plastic bags, I don't want to use it anymore. But I don't know How to throw trash, what kind of bag you could use that was not plastic garbage bags? Sorry For my english, it's not the best.

Hey there too-free-spirit-for-this-life ! So nice you want to stop using plastic bags!

If you recycle and compost (PDF file), most household trash is dry and doesn’t need a liner. And when you focus on making smarter purchases, you can reduce waste in the first place.

If you must have a liner, reuse a paper bag. Another solution is to reuse something destined for the landfill (and not recyclable) like a pet food bag.

Do break the bad habit of reusing plastic shopping bags for your garbage. In this case, plastic shopping bags should be recycled and kept out of landfills.

We often hear in Japan the expression ‘mottainai,’ which loosely means 'wasteful’ but in its full sense conveys a feeling of awe and appreciation for the gifts of nature or the sincere conduct of other people.
