Plastic Bag Ban for Philadelphia?

According to the Daily News, Councilmen DiCicco and Kenney will introduce a bill to ban "regular" plastic bags at supermarkets and pharmacies in favor of non-plastic, compostable bags. Kenney also plans to introduce a companion bill that would ban Styrofoam.

What a great idea. San Fran already does this to eliminate 1.5 BILLION plastic bags. Remember these bags don't dissolve. They take up room in landfills and stay there FOREVER. Come on Philly get with the program! Won't it be nice to drive down the streets and have no plastic bags blowing all over the place. No more getting caught under your car and melting and stinking for weeks. Hell yea. Holla back at your boy!

I'm amazed that so few people seem concerned about this. We certainly are living in a clueless society. What is it going to take to make people see the light?
