Many bay area cities already have a ban on plastic bags. It doesn’t mean you can’t buy garbage bags to take out your trash. It does mean Grocery Stores, Fast Food Restaurants, Consumer Electronics stores, etc.. can’t put your items in a plastic bag, it would be paper or cardboard hence forth. The great pacific garbage patch is a buildup of plastic and petroleum products that is estimated to be twice the size of Texas. This garbage patch destroys our ocean wildlife and endangers all who swallow its water with xenoestrogens. Let’s do our part to reduce this calamity by signing the petition to ban plastic bags in Sacramento.
