Plastic bags don't degrade.

It takes more than 100 years or so for that to happen and we're still not sure.

Of the 12 billion each year in the state, less than 5 percent gets recycled.

I just can't use my plastic bags fast enough. I'll just have to give some of them away. I could drop them around blke lanes.

Plastic bags are so it these days. I look so cool with my plastic bag while shopping at Stanford Fashion Happening. The girls always say: " Oh! Where did you get that smart bag? I most have one" .

Yes. You are right. Trendy "empty heads" *(so to speak)* like nothing better than to be seen by their wealthy upscale Democrat friends carrying dangerous disease spreading "reusable" grocery bags. They believe themselves to be clever for avoiding the Lowenthal grocery bag harassment tax. More astute observers, though, view those revolutionary activist approved, soil depleting, "reusable" grocery bags as a red-flag target that shouts out "HEY! I GOT SUCKERED INTO PAYING HEAVY STATE SALES TAX TO PURCHASE THIS THING."

I agree with Hmmm, we don't have a problem with plastic bags we have a problem with Litter Bugs, can't we find someone to pick them up? maybe someone not working or sitting at home waiting for their check to arrive?
