Battle of the Bags

Cities and countries around the world have recognized the environmental and economic drawbacks of plastic bags far outweigh the benefits. It is time the US got on board and banned the use of nonrecyclable plastic bags. They are endangering birds and marine mammals, and even humans who consume marine animals that have ingested the toxic plastic particles. Plastic bags are also made from nonrenewable resources...crude oil and natural gas. We need to reduce our usage of these resources, as they are rapidly becoming more limited.

Please sign this petition asking Congress to ban nonrecyclable, single-use plastic bags for the sake of our environment.

Thank you.
