As someone who lives somewhere where, effectively, being able to afford plastic bags becomes a wealth marker, I admit to a bias in favor of articles like this. That being said, the article does recommend fees for bags, which is essentially what we have here, hence pointing out that it’s basically a You Must Be This Wealthy To Use Plastic Bags thing.

I mean though… it’s almost… like… individual consumer actions… don’t… actually make much difference? When it comes to addressing the problems of global capitalism? Wha-aa-aa-aa-at?
