What are your thoughts on plastic bag bans? Every year over 8 Million Metric Tons of Plastic enters into our oceans and causes devastating ecological effects to our marine life. From Garbage Patches on our ocean surfaces, to studies that show how plastic (through micro particles) has officially entered into the human food chain. I believe that individually, we as a global network can streamline initiatives to promote the needed environmental stewardship to reverse this damage. However, before we heal we must stop doing what is damaging our planet; the production of plastic. Plastic bag bans can have both an ecological and economical benefit to our planet. From a reevaluation to our wasteful spending as consumers in grocery stores, to our reassumption as the protectors of our planet's animal and marine life. What are your thoughts on plastic bag bans? Or what initiatives can we promote to expedite the recovery of our planets ecosystem. ~Paul
