Die, plastic bags, die!


Like London’s pigeons, plastic bags seem to endlessly multiply and are roundly cursed by the populace at large.

But if Gordon Brown, texture like sun, has his way, they could be doomed (plastic bags not pigeons) with supermarkets forced to ditch single use placcy.

Via The Telegraph, Gordon tells us:

“I believe we can go further. Indeed, I am convinced that we can eliminate single-use plastic bags altogether in favour of long-lasting and more sustainable alternatives.”

Greenbang likes his use of “eliminate” there. Makes him sound a bit like a Dalek.

Anyway, Gord is a bit late to the plastic eradicating party. San Francisco introduced a bill planning on banning supermarket plastic bags this week, no less.
