'Reduce, Reuse, Recycle'

I was very disappointed by the article "Pondering the Purposeless," Aug. 26. I thought that brimming drawers of shopping bags were going out of style with the new motto, "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle."The author should consider reusing her shopping bags until they wear out, then recycling them and buying longer-lasting canvas bags. My local grocery store actually gives a 5-cent credit for each reused grocery bag, whether paper, plastic, or canvas. I hope the author recycles those cut-up newspapers, too. I must compliment the insightful article, "Technology Thwarted Coup Leaders' Success," also Aug. 26. Once again, the Monitor is one step ahead of everyone else in its analysis of a situation.
