Is this happening in your city/town

My city has implemented a new law -businesses will no longer offer plastic bags. Apparently birds get tangled in the plastic bags and die, so no plastic. Business instead will offer brown paper bag or you can bring or buy your own reusable bag.

Your city doing anything like this?

Mine did it quite a while ago. Most people bring their own bags, but is someone forgets, there are always recycled paper bags.

We did this a year and a half ago. You get used to it quickly. Now when I shop out of the area and get a plastic bag I feel really guilty about it

I'm sure I will feel that way once I get used to this..It's been a rough start since i always forget to bring my reusable bag. I've left stores on more than one occasion with all my items bundled in my arms.
