    Fat ASSHOLES, plastic bags only, but how about all others items made out of plastic and why supermarkets are still allowed to sell plastic bags to theirs consumers, I am chasing products in glass ONLY but not much available and my own BAGS I made them by myself from old jeans

    Point is - in order to get rid of the bad men; the #Earth needs to get rid of all men!

    Point is, plastic either needs to be recycled, buried or burned. Anything else is disasterous, and even burying and burying are pretty negative, so, if ee're going to make this stuff, we have to figure out how to reuse it and we have to figure it out pretty quickly.

    I would like to know for how long a period the bags were kept in the different environment. 1 month, 1 week or 1 year? Would be nice if they could give that information too...

    Maybe if you can’t burn or take all the garbage store it with abandoned buildings.??? Idk I guess it seems like a good idea?
