"A draft Oregon State bill, LC688, will be introduced during this year’s legislative session. The bill seeks to ban the use of single-use checkout bags except in certain cases and would be the first state legislation to require a statewide ban on both paper and plastic single-use bags." (Tiny Green Bubble, 24 Janauary 2011)
And this is the green side of the reusable plastic bag story. Notice their emphasis on control and penalties... over a plastic bag!!
In my research I found several manufacturers of alternative bags, all able to rot away within days, and at no real extra cost. It is so obvious that a political, and not an environmental, agenda is in place. Notice the fudging of the politics with an alleged litter problem by the Senator who helped draft the bill.
