I'm really happy that many countries ban the use of plastic bags.en
Why? They are so convenient.en
They are convenient, but they also create a lot of pollution when they are produced, as well as a lot of trash.en
I don't think a plastic bag or two really matters. They get recycled.en
If everybody uses just a couple of bags a week, then that makes more than a hundred bags a year.en
But so what? As long as they get recycled, then I don't see the problem.en
But they don't always get recycled, and even if they do, it uses a lot of energy. And plastic can't be infinitely recycled like glass.en
I don't know. I haven't really thought about it that way.en
Many people don't. That's why the ban on plastic bags is great. It makes people think.en
You do have a point. I guess I'm just too lazy to bring my cotton bags with me every time I go shopping.en
I just bring a big box. It's much easier to carry my groceries anyways.en
You are like my voice of reason. I'll have to make a bigger effort.en
