Other - bring my own cloth bags, since they last longer and they now usually charge 5p per bag here in the UK (they are usually plastic too - I don't think UK supermarkets ever offer paper bags).

Plastic, because I tend to keep them rather than throw them away, but really, it's all about handles for me.

If they offered paper bags with handles strong enough to not tear off when fully loaded I'd get paper. Hell, I'd settle for handles that lasted until I got to the car from the store and from the car to the house.

Paper bags are way easier to pack if you're doing the packing though.

I have been trying to use reusable bags more, but I tend to buy much more than they can handle.

Technically plastic bags are banned in Hawai'i so I either end up using paper or the thicker reusable plastic ones the store will offer to sell to you.

Cloth bags can in time be unsanitary if you don't wash them often as germs collect there with each use.

Plastic is so useful You can reuse it as a trash bag in a trash can.

Every time I go shopping they just use plastic, so I really don't have a preference.
