Plastic Bag BanCheck out this study that a Clemson University Student, Nathan Weaver did with respect to a plastic bag ban.

One grocery store in Clemson, hands out 15,000 plastic bags a week. Of these, less than 1% are recycled. It is something to think about with respect to going more green and with Earth Day coming up on April 22, 2013, maybe other communities should look at this initiative.

According to  Nathan Weaver’s  research,  380 billion bags are used in the United States and more than half of them end up in landfills
