The road to he11 is paved with good intentions.
More net energy will be consumed by mandating multi-use plastic bags:
1) People will forget their usable bag and will have to drive their 3500lb car back home to get them.
2) More reusable bags will be purchased and thrown away because they will become unusable once soiled.
3) Reusable bags will now litter the environment instead of the disposable ones. And these bags will take even longer to degrade.
4) Reusable bags will now clutter your work space, home space, car space and kitchen spaces.
But I like the idea of having a special rack of reusable bags with my shopping list on them so I can program myself not think and grab the Albertson’s bag, or the K-mart bag, or the Food-4-Less bag, or the Home Depot bag or the Target bag, or the Rite Aid bag…and lets not forget the Trader Joe’s bag.
Wow, think of all the corporate advertising and marketing opportunities!
….in the whole packaging world, these plastic bags are but a mere fraction of the energy and amount of material compared to the products they carry.
We as a people have made great advancements in safe, hygenic food handling and packaging.
Banning single use plastic bags is a huge step backwards.
