Victoria bans plastic bags … who’s next? — 4 Comments

  1. The Sooke community is already leaning in the direction of banning single use bags. The BYOB campaign is going to carry a lot of weight in the longterm conversation. I doubt that any opposing arguments would be mounted, though it seems certain retailers are reluctant to fall in line and do what’s right, rather portraying their usual status quo.

  2. It’s all well and good to advocate “Bring your own bags”, but until sanitatry standards can be established and enforced, they should not be permitted. The condition of some of the bags people are bring to grocery stores is absolutely repulsive. At the end of the day, plastic is for all intents an inert material.

  3. this is clearly a campaign started by the Glad company to encourage use of their kitchen catcher bags, and I’m only partly kidding lol. They know we all use plastic grocery bags to line garbage cans, collect pet waste, carry around wet clothes, etc.and will be forced to buy their stinky single use bags if we have no other option. Unless the whole region bans ALL plastic bags, including the thick commercial ones, the whole thing is a just a well-meaning waste of time and resources.
