Hello left coast! Here in NYC we are considering not a ban of plastic bags, but a charge for them. My local Community Board (I’m a member) is weighing in, and I thought Chowhounds would be a good source of info from a place that’s gone even further. What’s been the experience/reaction from this broad group of thoughtful people who presumably buy a fair amount of food? Not looking for statistics (though that would be nice); more just the anecdotes. Is it a big deal? Have your attitudes and behaviors changed since the ban went in place? Sorry to the moderators if this is too tangential!
