Plastic bag ban


Have any of your local supermarkets started banning single-use plastic bags?

Re:


Ireland did that years and years ago - if you need a plastic bag now in the store you pay 22c from those really thin bags and from 45c to 75 cents for one that's more durable. I take my own carrier bags to the store.

Re:


Some states have banned them. The state I live they haven't and the sooner it comes the better.

Re:


it's about the most asinine thing...you know how much plastic is used in everything? Getting rid of plastic bags is like 0.00001 % of consumer plastic...it's so that the tree huggers can claim an empty victory...

Re:


I re-use the plastic bags I get from my local supermarkets to clean up after my cat, so I'm not looking forward to having to spend more money buying bags instead of getting them free from the shop.

Re:


Considering the amount of plastic bags I have to regularly pick out of my front garden from people just tossing them and then getting blown around, I have no problem with banning them, no matter how small a percentage of overall waste they may be!

Re:


so should McDonalds, Wendy's, Burger King, etc be forced to stop giving out paper bags, sandwich wrap, fry boxes, paper cups, etc because they all wind up in my yard as well? and how about banning all the dogs that !@#$ at the edge of my yard?
