Paper Or Plastic? How Bout' bring your own bag....
There are proposals all over the states to ban paper and plastic bags. Some want to ban just plastic while others want to ban both.
The Los Angeles City Council voted Tuesday to ban plastic shopping bags from stores beginning July 1, 2010. Shoppers can either bring their own bags or pay 25 cents for a paper bag.
Senator Mark Hass, in Oregon, drafted a bill banning plastic grocery bags. SB 1009 would allow stores to offer only paper and reusable bags for customers.
Florida has backed off it's plan to ban both of them 9for now)
What do you all think of this policy? Should plastic be banned? What about paper? Should consumers be forced to provide their own bags for the goods we all purchase?
