How many plastic grocery bags do you have in your house?
Here in Michigan we shop at Meijers at least once a week where we add at least 8-10 new plastic bags every week. In our basement, we probably have 500 of the hard to get rid of bags stuffed in a big trash bag.
Governing magazine, in its blog, writes about the dilemma in using the bags and about the effort to get consumers to go reusable.
Is this something that state legislatures should mandate? How badly are we hurting the environment by allowing their use?
