1. People have always used the plastic bags for other things. But now we reuse them time and again and again, before using them for other things.
2. The problem has never been the carbon footprint, it's the lack of reusability, recyclability and degradability. On one hand the flimsy plastic bags we used to get in supermarkets ripped between "Hail" and "Mary", and on the other they stay around forever, unusable but there.
3. Not 7100 times more, just 7100 more time. See: the cotton tote actually lasts usable longer than a sneeze.
