Poll: Is There a Plastic Bag Ban Coming to a City Near You?

Cities across the country are resorting to bans as a way to reduce the impact and harmful effects of single-use plastic bag. Los Angeles joins San Francisco, Toronto, Westport, Connecticut and the State of Hawaii, all with single-use bans in place.

In May 2012, Los Angeles became the largest city in the nation to approve the banning of single-use plastic bags at supermarket checkout lines. The ban will be phased in over the next 16 months. Shoppers will need to bring reusable bags or purchase paper bags for 10 cents each.

Cities that have instituted these bans have seen a dramatic decrease in the damage single-use plastic bags cause our environment. How do you feel?

  1. I wish folks would get this passionate about eliminating automatic weapons, high-capacity magazines in addition to (properly) mandating background checks for ALL firearms across ALL commercial (ie, non-family) sales! THREE simple rules (re. firearms) and the cities, counties and states lack the back-bone to “get’er done!”
