Another Plastic Bag Ban: Los Angeles

PlanetSave


LATimes: L.A. City Council votes for ban on plastic shopping bags

The council plans to ban plastic carryout bags in the city's stores by 2010, unless the state imposes a 25-cent fee on those who request them.

LA is the latest American city to adopt a ban on plastic grocery bags. Such bans have been adopted around the world and have been extremely successful in decreasing pollution. It makes a lot of sense. When we were in Germany two years ago, we learned very quickly to bring our own bags to the market, or we got charged a euro for a new cloth bag.

I hate to say it, but that is a beautiful picture in a very pathetic way.

I have a 12 year old granddaughter who has started her own business to help the environment and help people adequately protect their perishable food between the store and home.

She is selling Kool Bags - thermal insulated shopping bags (made in the USA) that utilize space age technology resulting in an ultra thin, highly effective bag to protect any heat sensitive items - even newly purchased potted plants!

I've had mine for over 5 years!

I encourage you to check them out on her website at YouthBusiness.us

the picture I just saw on your page just explained a million and one words in that short frame. That kodak moment shows how this world will some day escalate into an unforgettable disaster. Im not saying that now its not a disaster because it is, but when is this massacre going to end???
