  2. 90%+ of all ocean waste comes from a short list of sources – none of which are in the US. This is virtue signaling at its worst. What a joke.
    I type this from my Electric Vehicle that required 500,000 tons of ore to be mined to supply the material for the battery.
    People are so stupid.

  3. If people actually cared about the environment and climate change, they would ban private jets and corporate jets. But they aren’t willing to even consider that.

    Leave the grocery bags, that people who can’t afford to own a car use to haul their groceries home when they have to walk, alone.

    1. how would John Kerry get around without his 500 gallon per hour GV
      how would all the hollywood elites get coast to coast
      how would all the democrats who suck up use a corporate jet (while ONLY reimbursing the owner for the price of a coach airline ticket)
      So ban the jets, put the blue collar workers who service, build, fly and maintain them out of work
      you TRULY are a MORON

  4. I thought it was a well-known fact that far less than 20% of all plastic is recycled in the USA (and also the world, I believe) Why not focus energy on how to recycle/reuse the plastic? After all, NO ONE is giving up using plastic trash bags, and I seriously doubt anyone will be banning them any time soon. So bring your trash bags to the grocery store.

  5. As once said by a famous Saturday Night Live comedian
    “If it’s not one thing it’s another”……..

    “An estimated 1.6 billion disposable masks wound up in the ocean in 2020, creating a vast pile of floating plastic waste and threatening marine life across the planet.

    Researchers from Visual Capitalist found that 3 per cent of the 52 billion disposable single-use masks produced to curb the Covid-19 pandemic found their way into the sea.

    The throwaway masks sent 5500 metric tonnes of plastic into the oceans, which will take up to 450 years to biodegrade, the group said”

    Please give me back my recyclable brown paper bags.

  6. The state should ban pizza boxes and make people carry out an entire pie with their bare hands. If it will save the environment, it’s worth it. Same with chinese food take-out containers, ban them. Have people carry out handfuls of lo mein and fried rice.

    1. Bringing our own metal containers to pickup food is a great idea and it has proven to work great in the glorious country of Afghanistan.

  7. Ban plastic trash bags, they use more square feet of plastic than a retail plastic bag. Trash can be dumped into garbage trucks directly from the can. Whatever garbage sticks to the inside of the trash can could just be hosed out into a small pile in the street.

    1. Your radical suggestion can lead to an infestation of rats and other unwanted critters. But we’re headed toward NYC trash quality of life anyway and it doesn’t really matter as long as we feel great killing our old plastic enemy.
