30 April 2016: New York’s Bag Bill – taking action

There is a good article in this week’s New Yorker, written by Ian Frazier, on the efforts of Jennie Romer (and others) to get a ban on plastic grocery and retail-store bags  in New York City. It is in-depth and provides insight into both the ecological problems of plastic bags and the tactics of those opposed to banning them.  The concluding paragraph suggests that the bill may finally pass in May of this year.
