In 2012, Americans alone produced over 250 million tons of garbage. One

order to reduce this source of waste, many countries are banning plastic
bags or taxing customers for their use. Using at least two scholarly or
reputable resources and your textbook, discuss at least two environmental
problems caused by such extensive plastic bag use. If you were in charge,
what plan might you propose to reduce or eliminate their use? Discuss the
economic impacts of implementing your plan versus the financial impacts
of making no change in our current use.
Your initial post should be at least 150 words in length. Utilize at least two
