    we get so many at the airport each time from Divi. I looked in my carry on, I had three, lol. I'll have to remember to leave them in the trunk of the car. Truthfully, I prefer the recycleable bags. I wish all supermarkets banned the plastic bags. One thing I did notice in SuperFoods, alot of the residents do use the recycleable bags. it was mostly tourists that didn't. when I remembered, I used the recycleable bags. I leave them in the trunk of the car at home. Will do that while in Aruba

    oh no, we reuse those to pack our lunches. Guess it's plan B now and even though we do not have a plan B yet, we'll get one and just go with the flow.

    What a great change to take place. We travel throughout the island and it's sad to see the bags by the roadside or dangling in the tress and cactus. Not to mention the one's we pull out of the water while walking the beach m

    Good in the UK we already have this ,if you do not have a bag ,for alomost anything dress food any item you will not get one ..
    all our shoos will charge you for a bag ..So remember to take your own to the shops ..we always carry a bag for shopping in our handbags ( purse) ..Just in case ..You can at the moment buy a re usable bag at Superfoods and most supermarkets , in fact I purchased 5 last time as I gave them as a very small gift to my friends for them to put in their own Handbags , it's says ..
    Love Aruba ..,You don't know until you have been ..!!.....A bit of advertising for Aruba ...so remember you cool bag and reusable bags ..
    Last year superfoods had their own Queen for the carnival it was such a good night , each employee had to do an interview ,
    the one that won the evening of Superfoods employee talked about recycling ...

    When we go to Ling's or Superfood for our big grocery run we end up with all our grocery bags in boxes. Easier to carry to the TS. I guess we can survive with groceries in boxes without bags.
