Ban plastic bags in Skokie!

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!


So many good things can happen if we ban plastic bags from stores. Plastic bags block drains and fill with water creating nesting grounds for mosquitoes. Getting rid of plastic bags will decrease the amount of mosquitoes as well as litter. A portion of our taxes pay people to pick up our litter. If we ban plastic bags our taxes could be put to better use. The biggest problem with plastic bags is that they do not readily break down in the environment, with estimates for the time it takes them to decompose ranging from 20 to 1000 years, so the bags will just sit there unless someone picks them up. Many other good things can happen if we ban plastic bags from grocery stores. We need your help to be able to do this. Please sign this petition to get the Village of Skokie to ban plastic bags in stores!
