BAN PLASTIC BAGGING

As we know, plastic is spawned by SATAN. It doesn’t biodegrade, starves and kills plant and animal life, and is now utterly useless in the year 2020. Worldwide, 2 million plastic bags are used every minute, according to Ecowatch, 500 billion and 1 trillion plastic bags are used worldwide annually. So why do we need this much of bad thing?

And if you think this is some liberal, glitter-fairy, hippie-dippie BS, then you should know: it’s inside you. In fact: The average person eats 70,000 microplastics each year. That works out to about 100 bits of microplastic over the course of just one meal, according to a study published by the EPA. Loving that sushi, now?

So, once again, why so much of a bad thing? Well, plastic is made of: petroleum, natural gas, coal, salt, and numerous other highly toxic and carcinogenic properties. These all arise from highly profitable industries. Not much money to be had in reusable products. 

So, with everything we now know in 2020, how in the fudge are grocery stores still offering plastic bags to be used once and thrown away? Some of the reasons these corporations provide, "our customers prefer plastic" or "they're reusable, sir" or "we're phasing out by **insert year after Earth has collapsed**." To make things really disgusting, some of these stores DO NOT EVEN OFFER PAPER OPTIONS at check out. (SMART & FINAL, RALPHS, WAL -MART, for ex.) 

IT’S TIME WE DEMAND THESE BUSINESSES REMOVE PLASTIC BAGS BY THE END OF 2020. THERE IS NO REASON WHATSOEVER FOR THIS.

SOLUTIONS ARE: PAPER and BYOB. 

Please plead with me by asking the aforementioned companies to remove useless plastic bagging once and for all in 2020. STOP THE SENSELESS MAYHEM.
