New York Bans Single Use Plastic Bags

Drop file here to send
By host - celina.hernandez
Yesterday, New York governor Andrew Cuomo signed into law a statewide ban on single-use plastic bags. It is estimated that New York uses 23 billion plastic bags every year with 50 percent of those plastic bags ending up in landfills and around the city and waterways.

Governor Cuomo signed the legislation on Earth Day, which will take effect next March. The new law comes after Governor Cuomo implemented the New York State Plastic Bag Task Force in March of 2017. The task force developed a long-term solution to the plastic bag problem in the state. The final report detailed the plastic bag problem and solutions to implement.https://www.forbes.com/sites/trevornace/2019/04/23/new-york-officially-bans-plastic-bags/#723ed8205b77

California still has plastic bags but you have to pay $0.10 a bag.

It’s a good start for realistically reducing plastic pollution in everyday life. Better late than never!

Now it was years ago when they went from paper to plastic. And all the supposed benefits. Now they go from plastic back to paper, with all the supposed benefits. Aaaaaand in 40 years they will switch back again. It's all just politicians starting fires just to put them out again. Hey.... Are eggs good food again? Or is it every other odd year depending if the dog barks on the corner farm under a half... Or was it a full moon?

You are absolutely spot on! No matter what we use or how we use it, politicians will find a way to demonize it, thus taxing it, banning it - which will lead to alternatives that they will impose upon us and eventually tax and/or levy controls on how we may use, and eventually tax.

Have you read the article? If no, you may read it first. And if yes, do you think banning the use of plastic bags is helpful?
