Generally, I do not purchase carry bags because I carry my own bag. But if the number of items is more than the carrying capacity of the bag then I purchase a carry bag. Whether we purchase a carry bag or not we must keep the environment clean. Throwing things here and there may be a habit of a few people and I think the administration has to be strong in that case. Imposing a penalty whenever people throw things beyond the destined place will reduce this habit. Another important thing is not to buy things that you do not require. By purchasing things in excess the amount of waste increases. When you have enough carry bags at your home you can easily carry those bags for shopping, otherwise, if you purchase a carry bag dispose it off at its destined place.

I feel, the charges on the bags given are pretty expensive as they are 8-10 RS and the bags are not even strong. We can see the bags tearing near the stiches. So, it is better to avoid such unwanted expenses.

Even this challenging situation would ease
There are the provisions of cloth bags being sold in the big departmental stores in affordable costs. We may avail of such facilities in case we forget the same while moving to the market.
The author is reluctant to buy a carry bag and she opposes those people who throw carry bags here and there. Polythene bags have been banned but these plastic bags are still used by shopkeepers. Paper bags are a bit costly for shopkeepers. The consumer will not give an extra amount for paper bags. So these shopkeepers are using plastic polythene bags. In our area, we have no system of paper bags. A few months ago when policemen were searching polythene bags in the market and asking shopkeepers to stop using polythene bags, I was watching all this but now there is no pressure on shopkeepers to use paper bags.
When I go to purchase vegetables or grocery items I don't forget to carry homemade cloth-bag from home. But what I can do to these polythene bags which are in my cloth bag?
Be indian and buy Indian.
Since when the plastic carry bags were discouraged and rules were implemented, we started taking Big Shopper Cloth bags with us to the Malls or shops. Since the start of Covid lockdown, we do our bulk shopping online only. For whatever small shopping I take the Big Shopper cloth bags or any other convenient thick reusable plastic bags.
