Some Los Angeles City Council members are actually spending their time talking about a ban on paper and plastic grocery bags. A ban will threaten thousands of local jobs and raise grocery costs for working families.
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 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.
Plastic bags take up 85 percent less space than paper bags in landfills.
