Here in Portugal some supermarkets charge for throw away bags - (all plastic bags here have to be the bio-degradable type anyway, and it is fancinating to see just how fast they crumble into tiny fragments after a really short time,) and people seem to have really caught on to the concept big time taking their won...

In South Africa too some of the major supermarket chains are also charging for plastic bags and it is also amazing to see there how rapidly the ubiquity of plastic bags blowing in the wind has become. Still far too many but at least forward momentum...... Great idea folks...!!

Plastic bags are a cancer causing hazard to people, dangerous to animals and an insult to Mother Earth.

In Hawaii the grassroots effort to ban plastic bags has succeeded in a county by county ban at the local level. Honolulu City Council was the last one to get on board, by 2015 ALL ISLANDS WILL HAVE PLASTIC BAG BANS in effect!

We all should do that because in the Philippines we do carry our own grocery bags whenever we go grocery shopping it helps the environment & it saves lives of the marine life as well.. No more littering as well in the river or lakes.....as well

You don't have to live in California to appreciate this. We all live in this world and when people pollute it where they are just doesn't matter, we all suffer for it. Every little bit helps.

One way to stop the proliferation of plastic bags would be to charge for them. Just a 25 cent charge would make a lot of people remember to bring their own bags.All of this could go to help recycling projects.
