Outlaw the plastic bag?
Beginning in November, traditional plastic shopping bags and Styrofoam containers will be illegal in San Francisco and San Francisco County. Stores will be required to use bags made from compostable plastic, paper or canvas, and all food containers must also be biodegradable, compostable or recyclable. Portland, Ore.; Boston; Baltimore and other cities and counties are considering similar laws.
Are those laws a good way to reduce litter and promote the use of recyclable material?
