Am I the only one who finds it annoying, inconvenient, more costly and even more deleterious to the environment in not being able to save plastic bags no longer provided by Newton retailers for containment and transport of purchased items, and then using them as waste basket liners?  I say environmentally deleterious because the replacement plastic bags available for specific purchase to line waste baskets are thicker and generally larger, beyond what is actually required as well as additionally harmful to the environment, compared to the former free plastic bags.
