     Every coin has two sizes, when we are enjoying the conveninent life which plastic bags bring, at the same time, we are suffring the polluted environment it causes. People has realized the bad environment which  plastic bags cause, and is determined to ban plastic bags to protect environment.
     Sandy-area residents shopping at the Sandy Fred Meyer appear split over the idea of banning plastic grocery bags.

     Welches resident Nora Galbee had plastic bags in her shopping cart, but said that was just because she had forgotten to bring her reusable bags into the store. She gave the ban a thumbs-up.

   “I think it’s something we should be doing,” she said. “(Plastic bags are) not environmentally friendly. They last too long in landfills.”

     She and others would remember to bring in their reusable bags if a ban were enacted, Galbee said. “We’ll adjust.”

    Valerie Walbert, a Sandy resident whose shopping cart contained several reusable bags, said she started shunning single-use bags – both paper and plastic – a few years ago.

   “I feel like I’m kind of taking care of my carbon footprint, my contribution to the environment,” she said.

    Everyone takes divergent stands on plastic bags, someone approves it, someone opposes it.In my opinion, we should ban plastic bags and use paper bags instead. Because it takes a long time for decaying plastic bags,also the process of decaying it will emmit a lot of toxic gas which is extremely bad for human health and our living environment.
