At some point, we've got to draw the line on crazy laws. Los Angeles is facing devasting unemployment and skyrocketing deficits. But what are some city council members focused on? Banning 100% recyclable grocery bags.
Help us defeat plastic bag bans and taxes across the country.
Plastic bags are 100 percent recyclable. More than 900 million pounds of plastic bags, sacks and wraps were recycled in 2010.
Plastic bags are chosen by more than 90 percent of consumers at the checkout. About 9 out of every 10 consumers reuse these bags for everyday household purposes.
Plastic bag bans and taxes have an impact on more than 30,000 American families who make their living directly from plastic bag manufacturing and recycling, as well as the thousands more who are indirectly employed.
