- Sep 2, 2013I do not buy things I do not need to "support jobs." That kind of thinking wastes money and creates environmental destruction. Jobs should exist to create things and services of value. As long as disposable bags provide enough value and convenience, fine, but If bags fall out of favor, it won't be the first time in history things change for our economy.There is a logical dishonesty in the law that requires us to be charged ten cents for a bag. The cost is not enough to deter people much. Plus, it only applies to bags. If the real goal is to decrease waste and to help our environment, this charge should be on every single take-out container of every kind. Discouraging the use of a plastic bag and not a styrofoam lunch box or plastic cup makes no sense.
