Ban Plastic Bags in the US!

This petition had 6,544 supporters

Every year, hundreds of plastic bags end up in landfills or the oceans. The plastic used in bags can take a 1000 years to decompose! These bags are wasteful and very harmful to the environment. Tell the US that plastic bags need to be banned. We can easily replace them with faster decomposing paper bags and reusable green bags. Here's what you can do:

- Sign this petition

- Use reusable bags

- Write to your local grocery store chain and tell them to go paper

- Write to your Senators and tell them to support a ban on plastic bags.
