I am another person who doesn't like the ban on plastic bags.
They have so many uses. As "Cheryl" mentioned, like her I also use them for wastepaper baskets, dirty cat litter, etc. I also use them for my wet swimsuit as I swim three times a week. Also my church asks for them for distributing food for the needy through the FISH program.
If they ban them, I will just have to buy them, so what's the point? They have too many uses to go away.
