On August 1st, the city of Long Beach enabled a new law prohibiting the distribution of plastic grocery bags at large retail stores (small stores will have until January 1st, 2012). This law will now force people either use / purchase re-usable bags or pay 10 cents for each paper bag needed to get products from the store to the final destination. The reasoning behind this ban is to help curb the litter problem in Long Beach.
Is this really going to make that big of an ecological difference? Is this a matter for the government or should this be an individual (or private corporation) choice? Is this just another step in having the government involves in our lives beyond where they should be?
