The poor use plastic bags for garbage, for disposing of pet waste, soggy swim trunks and diapers. Plastic bags fit in small garbage containers. Many carry their lunches in them. They are re-useable for hundred of things. When you don’t have any in the house, you really need one.
Only the elite would think they are not good because the elite can go out and buy plastic bags in rolls, which is not something the poor can do. We have to spend our money on food, clothing, gasoline and shelter.
Most bins at grocery stores are overflowing with plastic bags. They are sent off to places to make other things. I own a carpet made of recycled plastic gallon milk containers and bags.
Our government officials have a lot more important things to concern themselves with than a plastic bag issue.
When the feds and state pull something like this, we call it smoke and mirrors. I hope our local politicos are not taking their cue from them to distract us from more important issues.
