What a relief it has been to our country. The plastic bag were a threat to the soil by releasing toxic chemical which was affecting land owners. Now they have a chance to improve the fertility of their soils resulting in higher yields. I wonder how long it took our government to ban them. Do you out there still use plastic bags and is there any effect it has on you? Would you encourage the ban.

The government had to ban it because they were not being disposed in the right way and we're a health hazard

I would encourage the ban and I think soon the supermarkets here won't be able to give you plastic bags. I think this is a good thing.

I probably would encourage it as long as we still have paper bags!

Sure paper bag is more safe for the environment.

It's not banned down here yet but many stores have taken the initiative of not using them.

They make the environment dirty by the way they are thrown carelessly everywhere.

Yes, I use them. No ban here. I probably would since they can't be recycled.

@nangayo That's terrible. There is a special place we can take them at the different stores.

Some places charge for bags to encourage people to bring their own.

The use of paper bag is more healthy than the plastic.
