Nope, still a fallacy

The great garbage patch is mostly because of countries that don't have real sanitation and throw everything into the river. Littering Americans are a small percentage of the problem. Dispose of it properly and it really isn't any different from any other trash. As for reusable bags, your mileage may vary. I've thrown out two or three reusable bags in the last 12 months because they ripped or otherwise fell apart. I wouldn't buy one but since they kept showing up I figured I might as well use them. Until now.

Baggers barely touch the bags and they don't touch the handles if they know what they are doing. Are you wiping the plastic bag all over your face? If not, what are you worried about? If the bag were contaminated, so would all the merchandise you just bought.
