Answers to questions on plastic bag ban

(Continued)

Environmentalists tell us to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle, in that order. Plastic grocery bags are a perfect example. Many of us recycle them, though many do not. Some of us reuse them for dog waste or the like. We all need to reduce their use to create a cleaner earth. A ban is the best way to encourage us all to find alternatives to the environmentally unsustainable plastic grocery bag.
