No to plastic bags....Bring your own!
I really hate the plastic that hold plastic drink bottles togeater, they hurt your hand trying to get a drink off and they are deadly to animals that get their heads caught up in them,,,
I sometimes get plastic bags on purpose because I re-use them for other things and sometimes I get paper bags and use them to hold my paper recycling. A pledge to not use plastic is a good campaign, but outright banning plastic bags is arrogant totalitarianism which I am firmly against.
Please take your own cloth or canvas bags to market, and to do your other shopping!
Its really sad indeed!
reciclemos y exijamos de las autoridades promover el reciclaje y aportar con basureros en totos los barrios para el reciclaje.
I try to use minimal amount of plastic bags, but for the sake of truth, I cannot always say no, if I have no other means for carrying things, I occasionally need to get a plastic bag as well..
just remember that whatever they say about plastic is not true...
It's not bio-degradable and in 500 years from now people will be unearthing plastic bags still. Is that kind of world humans want to leave behind to children and grandchildren? For sure, I don't and that's why I try not to use plastic and recycle everything I can. It is a matter of education... Parents have to learn and pass it on their kids, right?!
