I just saw some people talking about this… it’s pretty goofy, but the point stands:
If you’re buying two candy bars at the convenience store, can you do us all a favor and have them hold the bag?
Then there’s this wonderful article from our friends at the American Chemistry Council reminding us that 91% of the U.S. population CAN recycle plastic bags!!! Wow!!! How many plastic bags were recycled this year? 91? …maybe? Come on.
Apparently the bag bill failed, but it’s been reintroduced for this legislative session… for more info and action to take on banning the bag, check out http://www.cawrecycles.org/take_action/single_use_plastics
