It has to go someplace..

eventually doesn't it? I think the ban should be nationwide personally. This is a huge waste of oil IMHO.

"Plastic bags are made from oil: it takes about 430,000 gallons of oil to produce 100 million plastic bags, and the U.S. goes through 380 billion of them a year."

It is estimated that 500 billion plastic bags are used worldwide per year!

And how about this?

"For every bag, there's a cost. Environment California reports that plastic bags, and other plastic refuse that end up in the ocean, kill up to one million sea creatures every year, such as birds, whales, seals, sea turtles, and others. And the number of marine mammals that die each year because of eating or being entanglement in plastic is estimated at 100,000 in the North Pacific Ocean alone."

Educate yourself, if possible. There are many reasons plastic bags are bad. Google is your friend.

As far as your precious trash bags....pfft... buy them. Good grief folks like to whine about what a hardship life is while the world dies around them....
