Pennsylvania citizens support a statewide ban on the free distribution of single-use plastic bags

    1. Petition by

      Brandywine Sprouts, a chapter of Roots & Shoots International

As a Pennsylvania citizen I support a statewide ban in the Commonwealth on the provision by retail stores of free single-use plastic bags and we urge statewide elected officials to pass legislation to that effect.  This action will promote the health and safety of wildlife and watersheds, protect the natural beauty of our communities, conserve our oil supply, increase the longevity of landfill space, and reduce trash management costs to taxpayers.

      I think it is obvious why...but if it needs to be explained; this is not a bio-degradable substance. We need to quit soiling our sandbox..in the simplest terms

      Plastic bag waste is shameful.
