Do you really know where the debate started? For facts about plastic bags and the environment, links to studies, environmental shopping strategies and an opportunity to participate in a survey of your plastic IQ go to www.thetruthaboutplasticbags.com
Just finished reading the ordinance. What a joke. Single use bags are destroying the environment, so lets tax only the bags at large grocery stores and leave every other retailer alone. Like SF this ordinance will lead to more fee avoidance and more consumption of single use bags. SF allegedly banned bags but exempted every small business. This is another feel good ordinance that will not have the desired impact to reduce plastic use.
Don't miss out on the discussion!
