Finding holes in drastic bans on plastic bags

Are bans on plastic bags a bit drastic? As John Sapochetti from the Boston Herald states, the practicality of a bag ban just doesn’t add up.

Across the country, from Massachusetts to Austin, TX, Sapochetti points out some of the holes environmentalists and legislators seem to miss when enacting these misguided policies.

Studies “show that a customer would have to use a canvas bag 130 times before they start achieving any net environmental benefit. Plus, putting produce, poultry, meat and frozen foods in these bags pose a real health concern.”

Not only does the data show the benefits of plastic bags, but real people like YOU have told us how you reuse and recycle your bags.

See some of the plot holes in the story the environmentalists continue to push out, despite the facts. Read the latest from the Boston Herald.
