<<I'll continue to use plastic bags.

Nobody's stopping you. I'll continue to use tote bags.

Actually, they do.


In Seattle several years ago the city council adopted an oridinace prohibiting retailers from giving customers bags when purchases were made.

A referendum challenging the law was circulated and the law was repaled by a lopsided majority of voters.

A couple of years later the city council passed a similar law again. Too bad people didn't throw that one out too, but I guess it's easy for city paid politicans to pass laws than for citizens to circulate petitions to have such laws thrown out.

So around here, people ARE stopping you.
