Boston Legislature proposes Ban on Plastic Bags State-wide

As stated by a recent news in Boston, a proposal has been made by the legislature to reduce the usage of plastic bags and this time, there’s not much opposition even from retailers as they’re also hoping for rules that would be consistent throughout. The bill would forbid stores from giving out single-use carry bags and replace them with recycled paper bags which would cost nearly 10cents. If the bill gets passed, the entire statewide ban would be in practice from 1st August, 2018. Globally, plastic bag pollution is an issue which leads to a new ‘urban tumbleweed’.

As per the estimation by the world economic forum, by 2050, in our oceans, there would be more plastics than fish. This would be a major factor restraining the economy of Massachusetts who also rely on the ocean for food.  Around 55 cities and towns have already banned the use of plastic bags. The proposal basically aims to encourage the consumers to bring their own reusable bags which can also be considered as a part of behavior modification.

The sierra club is working on this plastic pollution issue since 10years from which they found out that Massachusetts uses two billion and more plastic bags per year and this plastic takes around 1000 years for complete breakdown. The sierra club’s volunteer legislative advocate, Clint Richmond, said that, even if the bill gets passed, the issue doesn’t end there. As per his estimation, Massachusetts uses 20 billion plastic pieces each year in the form of plastic utensils and packaging. The bill is expected to be processed in legislature and taken up by next year, 2018.
