They wont ban these bags but they are sure to attached a "Fee" aka TAX
Its a lot like the $8.00 additional "Fee" you play when purchasing a LCD Screen. They say its a recycling charge but the last I knew there was no redemption centers to get your money back when the stupid thing dies.
I say start dumpling your plastic bags into the ocean. Lets the sea life consume it. Fish love getting stuck in it like a mini-vacation
PROBLEM SOLVED CALIFORNIA.
I bought a tv few months ago cause it was on sale once i saw the add ups i saw a recycling fee of $20 i was like wtf i guess so its just a way maybe for the state to make up tbe money of their losts who knows only they know and it wont have its way to prove it either but we have corrupted government as well its not just mexico who has the government all mest up either its just everywhere basically!!

Why aren't tea baggers biodegradable? They certainly should not be recycled.

Use a separate bin marked "Toxic Waste" to dispose of republicans. Do not put the bin out until collection day or you will be cited for littering.

To all of you that think it is a waste of time and that plastic bags are not a problem, you need to watch the documentary "Plastic Paradise" Maybe it will open your tightly shut and ignorant eyes.

Monsanto has been lobbying the Mexican government to approve genetically engineered crops and bee-killing pesticides in the Yucatan, one of the biggest honey producing regions in the world.

With honeybees already dying in massive numbers due to the overuse of pesticides, this could be the final nail in the coffin for Mexico's bees.

But the beekeepers are fighting back and just scored a major legal victory over Monsanto and their bee-killing pesticides.

In Alabama his cousin was probably also his wife and probably republican, so let's hope she's still biodegradable.

OK, well I won't spend money anywhere that doesn't over complimentary sacks. Nothing worse than forgetting a bag or not having enough room and being told you have to buy more. Also, those reusable bags are less environmentally friendly once they wear out and end up in the landfill or ocean.
