No, I actually use paper bags around the house.

I wouldn't even be complaining all that much if they always had the large paper bags but gas stations around here largely relied on plastic for large bags and paper for small. They'll adapt im sure but it's just an unnecessary clusterfuck.

The problem is better rectified through recycling, not banning. Disposable bags are a convenience to the consumer and regulating them this way makes it an absurd inconvenience on the business.

There is literally NOTHING bad about this. Say what you will about climate change, but securing an environmentally healthy planet for our species is not a sham.
Sure, a ban may be a heavy-handed tool in some ways. Better to just tax/set a mandatory charge for the plastic bags as well, and have it be more expensive than paper. Still, it's definitely a net good move.

From wikipedia

Plastic shopping bags are in most cases not accepted by standard curbside recycling programs; though their composition is often identical to other accepted plastics, they pose problems for the single-stream recycling process, as most of the sorting equipment is designed for rigid plastics such as bottles,[20] so plastic bags often end up clogging wheels or belts, or being confused as paper and contaminating the pulp produced later in the stream.[21]

So you want more money to be wasted to solve these problems? That sounds like a fucking waste of monetary resources. Don't be a fucking idiot and bring a cloth bag with you if you go out shopping.

Isaiah Foster

Third world countries full of minorities (like California) have serious issues disposing of waste like polite, civilized humans. Turns out banning plastic bags has a huge positive effect on removing your typical "piles of slum rubbish" that follows these animals around. It was already tested in Rwanda, and that country remains one of the cleanest in the entire Dark Continent.

if we increase the penalty for littering, the majority of the environmental impact will go away. heavy fines for littering will probly bring in a lot more money than this bullshit as well.

Why?
because businesses make long term contracts with the people supplying their bags. this hurts the manufacturers and the store can no longer provide a convenience that the majority of the population relies upon. and all the bags they already have are now just sitting in a box somewhere if not in a landfill.

Just melt them into pellets before feeding them into the main belt.

Problem is, fines for littering necessitates someone to go find the litterers, give them the fine, and for them to actually pay up. This makes paperwork and generally doesn't work well with subhumans who don't give fuck about no law. Taxing/charging at the source (stores) or outright banning IS the better choice when you're dealing with an unruly population like in this case.

Littering penalties are a joke and won't prevent any subhuman from doing it. Littering in of itself is really cultural which is turn mostly racial. Where I grew up (very white area) people where shamed if they littered. Picking up litter was praised. People valued where they lived. There wasn't even a fine for littering because it wasn't necessary

Plastic bag cons just outweigh the pros. Its another example that the free market can't do everything, because customers are getting convenience but the negative costs to the environment they don't feel directly. To solve the problem the State has to come and intervene.

Again, an outright ban would not be my first choice of action - charging for bags to reduce overall usage is a better model, and it works in other countries. An outright ban is however the ultimate goal, since the plastic bag is net bad as a product. California is skipping quite a few steps on the way there though, which might screw things up a bit.

A little surprised much of Holla Forums thinks plastic bags are such a bad thing.

Maybe some day you all will consider that, since recycling requires more energy than producing from raw materials (for pretty much everything except aluminum cans), the recycling business is unsustainable without government subsidization because it's more expensive than using raw materials, and that government subsidization to artificially lift and hold up a market is just another excuse to tax people more.

Honestly produce bags should be replaced with paper ones as well, when possible. Plastics overall are a cheap and cuckout alternative that poisons people and animals, but it's generally favored in all kinds of products even when there are alternatives because of price and ease of use. Bottles, cans, jugs, bags, kitchen tools, basically almost any type of everyday plastic tool or container has an equal-or-better version in metal, glass or paper that people don't use because they're lazy.

The problem is lack of education on civic responsibility. The smoothest path to fix this is with strategic and effective bans/taxation, such as the case with plastic bags.

You tell people "the amount of plastic bags we dispose of is destroying the habitat we live in" but people don't experience that destruction right now, so they keep on throwing plastic bags away in large quantities. There are only two ways they will learn, a) when it's too late and everything is fubar and b) you get into their pockets and excuse it as helping the environment. Now the first generation experiencing b) is not going to learn, but the next generations will accept the government impositions and will eventually grow up to not accept the careless disposal of plastic bags.

Of course there's no way some of the people will learn because their progenitors are hopeless and they somehow infect their children with their inability to be responsible citizens of a western nation.

des.nh.gov/organization/divisions/water/wmb/coastal/trash/documents/marine_debris.pdf

You're talking about recycling as if it's actually the solution to a reliance on oil- what do you think those recycling plants run on? The very fossil fuels you're trying to get rid of! Same with electric cars- it just moves the oil from the car to the electric plant, and doesn't actually reduce emissions.

And if we replaced the electric plant's power with renewable resources? You can't! Even with todays most efficient solar panels, the finest windmills, you'd have to cover the entire world in panels or mills to get the power you want and even then it isn't enough.

Might be best to think twice before trying to prop up a bullshit market with taxpayer money.

To be fair, no education is a relevant point in the case of littering. White people get taught not to litter, but that happens at a really early age. The bigger problem is that even when you educate niggers, they are much less receptive to it than whites (on average). So it doesn't stick, and if it sticks the first time it probably won't stick the second time.

I've found plastic bags on my property floating around in the marshes. My swampland is in the middle of the forest, 5 kilometers from anything but neighboring properties which are also forests. Unfortunately, my neighbour is a thoughtless swine.

Oh, no, you got a few bags that could be cleaned up on your property. Better ban all those damn bags instead of punishing the actual polluter.

Also can anyone say what's wrong with using these?

They are a hassle, cost money (instead of being practically free at every store that uses them), and are slower to pack because they are a non-standardized bag in a standardized efficient process.

They are also gay as fuck, but since you already have a man purse I am sure that doesn't bother you.

You're buying plastic bags anyway. So might as well kill two birds with one stone and get the fucking disposable 40 liter plastic bag, bring the groceries home with it, and then use that said plastic bag to take trash into disposal bin.

You can't fix retarded communist third world cocksuckers who cannot comprehend the whole concept of putting trash into containers and putting those said containers into bigger trash containers which get emptied and the trash gets processed.

Recycling is honestly feel good, do nothing, nonsense.

I've stated this before, and never received a credible rebuttal.

Plastics are notorious for not biodegrading, if/when we find ourselves in a peak oil situation (plastics are hydrocarbons) landfills will essentially become mining sites for plastic and aluminum (which does not, in the traditional sense, corrode).

I hate to sound like a faggot, but the free market will actually solve this. As soon as it becomes price effective and somebody invents the technology to separate the plastics and aluminums (along with whatever else is valuable enough to extract) capitalists will simply buy old landfills and go to town.

Granted, paper is a bit different. It biodegrades easily enough, so pollution isn't a problem in the long term. It's simply an issue of tree management. I could see a justifiable reason to recycle paper… maybe.

That being said, I obviously don't give a shit if you throw your aluminum cans and plastic crap away. Nor do I care if you use plastic bags. Just make sure that shit ends up in a landfill and not in the ocean or scattered about nature.

Plus, and I admit I could be wrong about this, but my understanding is that recycling plants give off some pretty nasty fumes when recycling plastic that isn't considered very good for our atmosphere.

A far better strategy is the whole reuse, and to some degree reduce strategy. Theres no point in throwing away a perfectly good container that you can get included in the price of your Cool-Whip or peanut butter. And I'm sick of shitty plastic goods, and so should you. Maybe when Trump brings back manufacturing, we can once again produce quality goods made of steel instead of shitty Chinese plastic pieces of crap that crack and break constantly.

Yeah, I hear what you're saying about shit being everywhere.
I'm saying that's bullshit.
No matter how many plastic bags you put into the environment, they'll all be gone within a decade or two.
So, to re-iterate, I'm saying plastic bags are good because
1. They're cheap as fuck, cheaper than the paper bags you're trying to replace them with
2. They aren't trashing up the environment nearly as much as you make it out to be, they naturally decompose within a decade or two, no matter how many are produced in a given year.

Definitely yes in regards to hydro-electric and geothermal, it's free energy wherever it's available.
As far as trying to completely get rid of fossil fuels entirely, it might be worth considering the idea that fossil fuels are a problem in the first place might be complete BS, along with the idea that carbon dioxide emissions are harmful to the environment.

Despite what 'climate scientists' would like you to think, the Greenhouse Effect contradicts both the first and second laws of thermodynamics.

Aluminium is one of the few resources where you actually don't have a net energy loss in recycling; producing new cans from recycled cans is vastly more efficient than mining new ore.

Recycling may not always be the best way to do it, but it IS overall a good way to keep things inside the system loop rather than shitting up nature.

And I'm saying you're full of shit. "A decade or two"? Unlikely, and even if that's true for some types of "biodegradable" plastic it's definitely not for the vast majority of them.

Also? Plastic shit lying around in nature is disgustingly ugly. Take what you bring back OUT.

Ok, but aluminum cans in a landfill don't shit up nature. We aren't even close to the point of landfills threatening to take up vast swaths of land. By the time we could potentially get there… well ultimately we've already left this rock or we're all dead. But more importantly to the point, capitalists would already be mining, removing, and recycling these resources with unimaginably better technology.

I completely agree that littering and pollution are problems, if you are strictly talking about throwing aluminum cans around randomly. But recycling doesn't stop litter bugs.

I ultimately don't care if someone recycles. It's not as if it offends me. It's just kind of pointless. But hey, if you live somewhere where you can make a few bucks off from crushed cans, I can't blame you for that either.

It's still a net loss if you have to ship things to a landfill, where it gets mixed it up with other stuff, and then has to be extracted to get back into the system, compared to just adding another container on the garbage truck run.

Zachary Price
Zachary Price

Technically all aluminum corrodes almost instantaneously when exposed to oxygen. That corrosion simply creates a shield which guards the rest of the aluminum from contact with oxygen, and hence, further corrosion.

Yes, there are ways to artificially create an environment where aluminum will corrode (purposefully exposed to some type of acid I'm sure). And I'll admit, while I can't name them, there are most likely natural events as well.

The point is, it doesn't corrode in a traditional sense. You can let a piece of aluminum sit around outside for decades, and it's gonna be a hell of a lot more structurally sound than a piece of exposed iron, steel, copper, nickel, or basically any other metal.

Jeremiah Nelson

And paper? You can pull a newspaper out of a landfill decades ago and still read it today.
The fact is, neither paper nor plastic decomposes well in a landfill because we design both our paper and our plastic to be as stable and dry as possible.

If you believe in the carbon dioxide emissions bullshit, then moving from plastic to paper just moves the problem from the oceans to the air, as paper bag production is considered to have more negative environmental impacts related to air emissions.

And again, paper bags are still more expensive- where plastic bags are so cheap they'll give them out to free, paper bags always cost the 10 cents, because they're too expensive to just hand out to people for free.

There is no way to determine that. We are talking about a hypothetical event in the future, utilizing technology that doesn't exist. The point is, whatever the margins are, at some point it becomes profitable at the time to mine landfills for somebody. And in the current, it makes our lives easier. The garbage company, while it could be estimated pays more money in gas to transport extra waste in the present, obtains a valuable resource (their landfill full of what will be valuable plastics and metals) in the future.

I don't know how to speculate on the prices of aluminum and various plastics decades in the future, nor do I know the effectiveness of the technology of then, compared to the effectiveness of our technology now.

All I know is that the value of plastics and aluminum will be higher in the future assuming we aren't blessed with a large asteroid made of plastic and aluminum slowly landing from the heavens, and that whatever technology they have then, will be better than the technology that we have now.

It's inevitable. It's not even in question. Necessity is the mother of invention.

We don't currently have the technological means to extract plastic and aluminum from garbage at a profit now, because we don't need to. As soon as somebody can make a buck doing it, they will. It's not theoretical physics. We aren't talking about warp drives, and teleporters.

Can you name any other resource that we demand, and that actually exists, in which we haven't found a way to extract it from it's surroundings at profit?

Landon Williams

OK, then figure out how the taxpayer money is flowing from your pocket to that store that gave you the paper bag for free, because I guarantee it's being subsidized under your nose.

I gotta run now, but here at the end I'd just like to point out how, over the years, "global cooling" turned into "global warming" turned into "global climate change".

They've been so wrong about all of this bullshit they can't even make up their mind about whether the world is going to turn into a burning hell or if we're getting a new ice age, and the only thing they've learned is how to word their bullshit in a way that they're 'right' no matter what happens as far as the weather goes.

BULL FUCKING SHIT PAPER IS "BETTER" - THIS IS DEMONSTRABLY FALSE IN EVERY SENSE OF THE WORD!

One tiny fraction of a gram airsoft size plastic pellet, plastic which breaks down and disappears in about a week, and can be reused multiple times for damn near anything, is [albeit temporarily] waterproof, plus requires far less fuel to transport. Vs a quarter fucking pound of wood pulp that takes months and even years in a shady spot to break down, handles fall off immediately and any remotely damp shit like milk jugs drop out the bottom and shatter, and can't be reused for shit(well, maybe for that very specific purpose alone.) I've never littered with them as it's a scummy ass thing to do and they're incredibly useful so I always find another use for every last bag, whereas the paper garbage is bulky as fuck/takes forever to fold up and goes straight into the first trash bin I can find.

Fuck everything about paper bags and the greedy or misinformed shills pushing them. Plastic is literally superior in every single way so educate yourselves instead of kissing liberal ass on such easily exposed lies. Taking littering seriously and fining several hundred for first offense and even more + community service picking up those faggot fucking paper bags for repeats is the solution, not wasting millions of trees and thousands more gallons of fuel on something that a few thousand pounds of plastic, using far less energy(and pollution, faggots!) could replace. It's just another way for Jews to make an extra buck or two off every customer and make them feel eco-friendly when in reality it's hundreds of times more damaging to the environment and you're the one expected to pay for such stupidity.

Reusable bags are also extremely inconvenient, an unnecessary hassle, and require around 300 uses to compete with plastic when most offer a few dozen uses if you're lucky. Don't let them fool you so easily. Paper should be banned, not plastic. Talk about fucking cucks, I thought this was one place I could avoid this leftist horseshit.

The reason why many don't re-use their plastic bags is social shame. That it's somehow tacky to bring your own bag. That you're cheap not wanting to spend ~10c on a bag. That your effort to "save" the environment is just a drop in the sea. Etc etc.
If anything, make public campaigns to encourage re-using plastic bags. Give some incentive to do so. Something small, like a token (ironically made in plastic) if you bring your own bag - or something.

Or maybe it's a lost cause, middle class doesn't litter, while the poor class (we know who that is) does and will keep doing it nomatter how much stuff you make to hinder it.
It's the same social shame that causes littering (how much of a loser are you to bring your paper 10 meters when you can drop it right here, it makes no difference etc).
