2. Reader Comment of the Day: "I know a lot of people won't like these bans, and I know they are inconvenient for many people. However, the more I read about plastics and waste and the lack of big government and big business stepping up, the more I realize this has to also come from bottom up. Do you know about the Great Pacific Garbage Patch? If not, google it. Bottom line, we need to do something about all our waste..I recycle diligently and reuse...but I am still a huge contributor to all this garbage. The more we do, the better things will be..I believe that," reader webmom commenting on the article, Are Local Bans on Plastic Bags, Styrofoam and Water Bottles Too Much?
