90% of mine are returned to the store.

Awesome! Alas, 90% of bags are not returned by others. The majority of consumers return none of them and toss them all in the trash.

I'll continue to use plastic bags.

Nobody's stopping you. I'll continue to use tote bags.

almost no one re uses paper bags

I do, although I rarely can get them these days. Didn't yu grow up in the 50s/60s using paper bags for garbage? I did. But it's a continuing battle with my husband, who keeps throwing them away (I store them in the laundry room sink, which is rarely used as a sink) since he doesn't use them. Perhaps it's a gender issue ;-) He's bothered by bags in the sink.
