I knew the answer from watching something on TV about plastic bags in the ocean water's n landfills.

I'm 53 and remember a world without plastic bags. They probably save some trees, but they need to cost consumers to encourage reusable bags- something the plastic bag lobby does not want!

Originally they were giving paper bags at the grocery store and than they switched to plastic bags. Now they sell reusable bags.

We take cloth bags to the stores with us. Even so, We still end up with a lot of plastic. We use it as waste can liners, As packaging when shipping, at our vegetable stand and recycle the rest.

I like Daire's comment. We should have a surcharge on plastic bags.

Some places in New Zealand have a surcharge, but if people need carry bags they pay it anyway. The price of the plastic bag needs to be prohibitive if this is going to make any kind of difference to the amount of plastic bags entering the waste dumps.

Plastic bags, plastic bottles, plastic food containers, it all takes over 1000 years to break down in the soil.

So is it then OK to throw plastic around and wait 1000 years to have them decompose ? and be a sight for anyone to see; not sure what point 1000 years is meant to be Nicola
