In my opinion we are far too quick to judge those who end up choosing plastic over paper or who do not have their own reusable bag. We do not know the reasons why they are using plastic. Why are we judging and condemning? I highly doubt that banning plastic bags as if they are Carnal Sin will end the use of them once and for all. What about plastic wrap used in packaging food? Plastic wrap in the produce aisle? Are you kidding? There’s plastic everywhere. Grow up and get over it. The bags you see the grocery clerks giving you for free are only a small portion of the plastic that’s pollution that environment. Many of us count on that nice Free Stuff so we can RE-USE it. Why be snobs? I like being practical-minded and sensible, which is good for the planet, the mind, and the soul.
