    Ugh ok I get it... we need more biodegradable options but instead of telling us what we already know. Why not invest in making a type of sturdy biodegradable plastic if possible to make these bags? I know we should reuse and compost more but I know not everyone is able or willing to recycle so what we have to do is create an option and make it affordable.

    I remember the days when older people were very green by having paper bags, paper straws, etc

    WHAT THE HECK?? Are you seriously making viral such false information?? Biodegradable means it must be processed first in a industrial composting facility.... What experiment is that? Remove this video before it does more damage than already did

    It was never about the environment but a cash grab on the tax payers free bags that biodegrade over time to paying for bags that don’t biodegrade at all
