You may not know about this quite yet, or it hasn’t reached your town, but something amazing has happened to the entire state of New York. Starting on March 1, 2020, you won’t see any plastic bags coming out of shops, restaurants, parks, etcetera. This is just one example of what cities and towns are doing to make their planet better.
The banning of plastic bags has taken the world by storm, and it’s been seen and admired my many towns and cities. A city called Pensacola, which is 2 hours west of where I stay in Florida, has placed a ban on them. Duluth, Minnesota has created a ban. Even Ireland has placed a fee on bags.
This could get more and more places to do things like this, but maybe they just need a little persuasion. Here’s a link for Bye Bye Plastic Bags – if you’re planning to do this, they’ll really help. http://www.byebyeplasticbags.org/
