Lori McCoy's comments:
I am amazed at what I am hearing on your program! Plastic bags are made of a waste product we are getting from natural gas. What a great way to recycle!
I use plastic shopping bags as trash bags in our house. I do not buy plastic trash bags. We recycle, we compost our food waste (we have five backyard chickens and a compost pile), and we use the smallest trash barrel available from the garbage company. I view this practice as another way to recycle, because otherwise I would be buying plastic trash bags that do generate a cost to the environment to produce.
I understand that the pollution from discarded plastic bags is a serious problem. I am not convinced that banning them is the right solution.
