So most of us try our best to be environmentally safe and one way to do that is to choose paper instead of plastic.
Plastic bags of late have gotten a really bad rap. Well, we do use a million of these non-biodegradable buggers every minute. We both have those reusable shopping bags, but seldom remember to bring them into the store. Guess when New York State bans plastic bags all together, we will have to remember.
Other places are taking a different approach to get folks to not use plastic. See the video below from a British Columbia market that has printed their plastic bags with potentially embarrassing mock store names to try to discourage shoppers from using them!
We don't know...they are still offering the plastic...and some people will now want the bags even more!
