The non-woven stuff such as what is available at Wal-Mart won't survive much, if any, washing, but it is possible to utilize fabric bags/nets that can be washed. I have a set of canvas grocery bags that I bought about 15 years ago that are just now starting to show wear. I've washed them plenty of times in the interim. When they finally give up the ghost, they will decompose.

The solution to this "problem" is very simple.

At the personal level it's easy but more problematic at the public policy level. I suspect there is large segment if the population that, for many reasons, may not be diligent in washing bags. I'm not opposing the bags. Just pointing out how technology and political decisions often bite back.
