it's about time! It should be done all around the world too and not just for plastic bags, but for recycling too.
Plastic bags can be useful when used for spedial purposes. Otherwise they are dangerous, especially to animals that try to swallow these.
I agree with Julie, every state should do this with the plastic bags and the plastic bottles. NO PLASTIC!
Time to rid our world of dangerous bags that end up in other country's and in the oceans
Plastic bags get into everything, i hate driving over them in the car, (where are they going to get stuck) .being on a boat even, scary.
I agree the plastic bags should be banned, the mother earth will be pleased:)
Due to bugets cuts (I assume), much of this garbage is ending up in our communities and waterways, not in landfills. I am in the Los Angeles area and cannot believe the amount of trash/plastic on ALL freeways. How it ends up there? Not sure. Seems to me there were regularly scheduled cleanups which are no longer in place. Unfortunately, much of the garbage will end up in our waterways. Just as we got used to accepting those "handy" plastic bags..we'll get used to B.Y.O.B. (bring your own bag)!
Que no sea nada mas en San Antonio, en todos los centros comerciales que no permitan ya las bolsas de plastico, y esto a nivel mundial!
The plastic bag war...
Paper bags are made in foreign countries- taking American jobs from plastic bag makers. Plastic bags take a fraction of the energy (and pollution?) that paper bags take to make.
