While I don't feel one way or the other about this personally, it would be interesting to see how all the big national chains respond to this. Everyone automatically thinks "grocery store" when you say plastic bag, but think about all those bags going out of Sears, Target, Kmart, Home Depot, etc, etc. And some of those bags are pretty huge, too. I can't imagine they're paying to have special paper bags printed up just for those limited markets.
In the areas where plastic bag bans are already in place, what are these stores doing? And if you ban plastic shopping bags, are plastic garbage bags next?
