I’ve used cloth bags for over thirty years. Keep them in your car trunk and it just becomes habit

I love to swim and scuba dive and seeing all that plastic floating around - being eaten by innocent sea creatures - breaks my heart.

my sister inlaw asked me to, also plastic bags are bad, and I have a lot of reusable bags. but I guess once they ban the plastic bags, I'll need to buy more bags for garbage

Important to sign but how to pressure these foolish people? And how about single use water bottles?

Thanks for adding your voice.

Come on... Big money and legislators are all standing up for petroleum companies. We see what this IS doing. Millions of bags, prolluting in even the smallest community. Don't get me started on creating plastic materials 1 through 7, and only being able to recycle two or three of those materials.
It's time for oil and gas infrastructure to be rid with. Stop protecting old money! Protect us, hear us and TAKE CARE OF US.
This doesn't matter where we live-- plastic plastic is EVERYWHERE.
It's broke, IT'S TIME TO FIX IT.
ZERO WASTE....
For the love of all Holy,
Please.
Our children deserve the same future that we had.
Generation Y is showing you, our parents, the right way--with innovative, life-changing ideas.
We need to ban plastic, all around.
Stop putting blame on consumers... The plastic bag corporation has to go, AT LEAST, until it's wiped out completely-- charge consumers 5 cents a bag. So they remember, to bring in their cloth, reuseable bag for shopping.
Action needs to be taken and we have grown adults not wavering due to their own financial gain-- how do you even go to sleep at night KNOWING that our Earth is choking on plastic?
It doesn't matter who's fault it is-- it matters what we do NOW.
Together. Move forward.
Biodegradable. Eco friendly. Bags.

Things are out of control. People need to be reigned in. No reason not to use reusable bags

The LCBO does a great job of using paper bags. All retailers can follow their lead!
