We often use too many bags and fail to dispose them properly, they are not only a waste of resources but bring pollution to our environment. Do you use plastic bags or paper bags more often?

Here in manila, plastic bags are still widely used. I agree, proper disposal is the key. Earth friendly bags are starting to show up on most of the big supermarkets. They still use plastic bags for the groceries though but, hopefully soon, Paper bags will be implemented.

It is a welcome decision,and viewing from the long term point of view, it is a really a good thing to safeguard the environment. Initially banning the use of plastic bags, may make feel that they have deprived of something. We have read that, even Antartic and artic poles are getting dumped with these plastic wastes, apart from the e-wastes that are getting dumped, in the poles. Measures like this, though seem to be of a little step, is sure to have its influence and impact when it comes as a cumulative measure in saving this earth. Save Earth, Save Millions. Feed the poor.

I have recycled bags that I take with me to the store..they are stronger and easier to load and also to carry..I really dislike plastic bags and what they do to the environment...they don't biodegrade and they are all over the place...in trees, along the walkways, blowing about on the freeways, and they'll be around forever...I prefer to use a bag made from cloth/recycled material that can be washed and reused and is easier to use!!
