Plastic bags

Re: Plastic bag ban

Plastic bags are biodegradable.

First they also provide garbage bags for home use  such as garbage bags which stops using the heavier bags which may not be biodegradable

The bags "sold" at the grocery store also have plastic in them and are unsanitary after used a few times so I believe that this is a no win situation of political correctness which will only hit the poorer people up with more money out of their pockets.

Too bad as they are the ones who get hurt the most.
