Toronto, Ontario, Canada has banned the availability of plastic bags. It is expected that other municipalities will follow. Never agreed to the 5 cent bag as it "allows" the person who pays that charge to polute the environment--discriminatory. One of the reasons for the Toronto ban of plastic bags was that many merchants were pocketing the money instead of forwarding it to the cause.

One of the reasons for the Toronto ban of plastic bags was that many merchants were pocketing the money instead of forwarding it to the cause. The 5 cent charge should also have reduced the cost of goods as the cost of these bags (which I understand to be less than 5 cents) to the merchant was, before the ban or charge, factored in the cost of merchandise. It did not--sort of a double charge I feel.

I find all of this just hysterical! People have made a ton of money out of plastic bags. Remember we were killing trees in the forest to get paper bags and it was urgent that we stop doing that and use plastic.

We are sheeple and will just follow the powers that control us over the cliff. If you think it was unknown that plastic bags would do all of these terrible things back when we were told to worry about trees, I have some land in a swamp in Louisiana I would..... LOL.
