Let's just ban everyone who's so consumed with self-importance or paranoia that they think it's necessary to hide their location.

Why dont retailers use biodegradeable bags?
They take a looooong time to degrade, make a mess in the meantime, are a product of the petroleum industry, can be dangerous to children and wildlife, are constantly out-gassing, and are a fire hazard.

Why not ban the incandescent light bulb too? I mean, if you are willing to give up free disposable bags to carry your groceries home you should be willing to give up light to see your way, if you're not a hypocrite.

Lamps and bags should be used in moderation, unlike religion which is more harmful than anything else on the planet and should be given up completely.

Please recycle all memos. Use the blue bin provided for this purpose. The other bin with the skull and crossbones is for toxic waste. Please dispose of tea party trash in this container.

The other bin with the brightly logoed skull and crossbones is for toxic waste.

Wash hands afterwards.

Hello! Yes, it is pretty obvious that more taxes from selling bags is forced taxation.

How about tackling a real container problem like creating some guidelines for user friendly packaging for Seniors.
