There are groups moving for a law to totally ban single use plastic. Their reason is the pollution of the waterways. Admittedly the improper disposal of the said plastic bags are causing problems to marine life not to mention the clogged drainage of the sewage especially in the urban areas. However, I am wondering why the need to ban the plastic bags when the problem is not the plastic itself but the users. If there is a law that will make littering of plastic a crime then I guess that would teach people on how to dispose of plastic properly. Why ban an invention that is very useful to man?
