         Folk’s, here’s a great article that helps put a different perspective on the latest rage within the retail bag industry.  The author sites some pretty compelling science to back up his ideas why banning bags might not be the wisest thing to do.   
You want to feel good and think plastic bags are bad, so you say, “Hey, I’m going to buy those reusable bags”, only to realize that those, too, are plastic.  Want to buy paper bags as a substitute, great, we sell those too; but as we’ve been saying for years now, it’s not what bag  people use, it’s a question of how do people dispose of that bag AFTER they use it. 
Again, why do we have to turn to outright bans that punish everyone?  You may ask, “How may that be?”  Well, store owners that sell low cost goods are the folks who buy the lower cost bags; and if they have to upgrade a bag because of bans, then ultimately those stores are going to raise their prices to comply with new laws. Hence, we, the paying public, pay more for the things we need in the long run.
              
 As a store or business owner, you need knowledge and information to help you make the right choices. Informed decisions help business owners keep up with the demands and wishes of their clientele!  The following article has some very interesting facts regarding the pro's and con's of the uses of plastics!
