That May Soon Cost You

I haven’t purchased a garbage bag in more than a decade. I have a “bag of bags” at home and at work. Every store issued one is re used. So for me, the only question is whether the garbage bags for sale are cheaper than paying the ten extra cents.

In an effort to reduce the use of plastic and paper, the City Council is considering a surcharge if you don’t use your own bags at the checkout counter. Lawmakers introduced legislation today that would require grocery stores, bodegas, retail and drug stores to charge customers 10 cents per bag. The goal is to reduce waste and City spending on transporting trash to other states.

Supporters of the bill say charging customers who don’t recycle old bags will save approximately $10 million every year. Opponents suggest this is just another tax on the poor and a public education campaign should be implemented instead. The stores would keep the money from the surcharge. Customers who use food stamps would not be charged. Lawmakers believe the bill has enough support to pass in the new Council, despite previous failed attempts. Wh prada handbags at do you say?

Do you support this effort to reduce the use of 5.2 billion carryout bags in New York City every year? Is the ten cent surcharge too much, too little, or just right? Will this change the way you shop? Should customers who use food stamps be exempt?

I have been using reusable bags for years now, not for less for environmental reasons and more so for pragmatic ones they are sturdier. People who oppose this surcharge and cite “prices going up” have a very myopic point of view and do not understand nor realize the pressure and stress plastic bags place on the city and the environment. The African country of Rwanda has banned non biodegradable plastic bags within its borders in 2008 and it worked out great for them. 30 cents so taxis can upgrade to handicapped accessible. Politicians are going to nickel and dime us to death. When it comes to the waste the environment, we are all responsible we should do our part to help. But the penalty should be higher what is a dime ? Make it 25 cents. 4 bags and it gets expensive. And the food stamps why not include them? Do they not have to recycle like everyone else Really if the poor want to save money they can use a grocery bag and not take the paper or plastic You dont see plastic bags blowing around affluent in middle class neighborhoods but go to washington heights they are all overUES

Hi John

In order to cut down on waste more people need to recycle, i use my shopping bags three or four times before i throw them away, i don’t mind paying 10 cents for a bag it wont change the way i shop. People that are on food stamps should be exempt because they’re struggling to put food on their table for their families the government is cutting back on the SNAP program, nobody should go hungry the government should reinstate the money that was taken away from the poor families no child should go hungry.

Are there anymore useless proposals from this ridiculous city council? You mean to tell me that we have to use t prada handbags he same bags over and over again with all the drippings from the s prada handbags hopping that accumulates. This is outrageous to say the least. How about cutting some of their salaries and no show jobs for their friends. Already they have chosen certain ones to be exempt from this law. What environment are they referring to? I think they are smoking their own weeds and it see prada handbags ms as though it has effected them. [FOR SURE THIS GROUP IS NOT READY FOR PRIME TIME]

Here are five issues that deal with the environment that I feel are imperative and can help create a change for the better. Leakage from cars and runoffs from leaky cars runs off into streams and rivers, polluting freshwater. Only 2.5 percent of the world’s water is freshwater and 99 percent of prada handbags this freshwater is frozen in ice. Aiding in programs that help developing nations create waste treatment centers and educate them can help prevent future pollution. Make sure you check your car for gas, anti freeze and oil leaks before they become run off into your local freshwater supply. Be sure to dump all pesticides, chemicals and car fluids at a local waste center. This way we can make sure all of our freshwater supplies are kept clean. Monsanto, one of the largest agriculture companies in the world, has created and patented genetically modified seeds as well as a number of pesticides. They have also been known to release toxic PCB’s into the soil water supplies all aroun prada handbags d the world, contaminating whole counties (such as Anniston, Alabama) an prada handbags d cities, causing mass disease and even deaths. So by eating organic, non GMO food, you don’t support pesticides, PCB’s and GMO corporations who kill like Monsanto. N prada handbags ot only do they drop pollutants such as PCB’s into waterways, like the Hudson River, but they are also one of the top contributors of pollution all around and are highly supportive of this Global Warming movement, pushing for cap and trade policies. Hypocrites. Though this may be extremely hard since they own everything from electric, aviation, healthcare, NBC, Telemundo, The Weather Channel, Universal and many other companies. There are many reasons for this. One: Most products made abroad are made in sweatshops where workers are working in hazardous conditions, enduring inhumane treatment and with little pay. How would you feel knowing your sneakers came from the sweat and tears of a child being paid $15/month, meanwhile you’re paying $100 for those same sneakers. Second, shipping products across the globe results in the usage of excessive energy, pollutants leak into the water and air, and these ships carry foreign species to the US.Don’t, I’m no Al Gore. My solutions aren’t dramatic, nor will they result in my stocks rising. Humans production of CO2 is not the reason for change, but the large corporations and businesses are the cause of destroying our environments, natural habitats, and human lives. Once the corporations take responsibility for their actions on a large scale, we will actual be able to see a difference in our environment. Start by creating change in your daily life with issues that matter. Buying into the climate change scam only hurts us.
