China banning plastic bags

Very nice and congratulations to China. The blight of the world is disappearing even in one of the largest polluting countries of the world. A few cities in the US have banned them and over here in Europe they’re becoming less common. It’s easy enough to just bring reusable shopping bags to the grocery store (or leave them in your car) so I’m fine with ditching them.

I never quite understand the right wing hostility to getting rid of plastic bags. You would think that people were asking them to turn in their best friend or something. Oh right…they’re made from oil, I forgot.
