    Weird...I must have typed in the wrong web address. I thought this was a site about Disney.

    How much of that material ends up in landfills because people have no incentive to return them for recycling? I venture a guess that places with deposits end up with higher percentage of people recycling said material, money creates incentive.

Transitioning from plastic bags to reusable or paper ones really isn't that big of a deal, and it does a lot of good. I will applaud the day Disney does away with them, whether that is by their own choice or OC mandate.
    For sure, material is a major issue, my town limits our trash, we are allowed 1 container twice a month for trash, they wont take more then 1 container every 2 weeks. Recycling is picked up weekly. They do make it easy by not requiring anything to be sorted, they do all the sorting after pick up, but a good 99% of what I use in a month can be recycled, its amazing how recyclable everything really is.

    Basically the only thing that ends up in the trash are things like razors, tooth paste tubes, styro-foam, even food scraps are placed for composting in a separate container.

    When you can no longer throw unlimited trash away, its amazing how much gets recycled.

    Re: Plastic Bags in Disneyland

    In the long run to get back on topic. It seems as though the bans on bags is a city by city ban (at least for now) so that being said. I can't see Anaheim doing something that would majorly inconvenience its biggest business partner in the community. Besides - I don't have that many "Disney" bags under my sink and I don't see them blowing all over the streets of Anaheim or floating in the ocean.

    On the other hand, when I run into 7-11 to grab a bunch of cokes, chips and powdered donuts, I would like to be able to have the guy put it in a bag for me to carry out to my car. The ban is HB is still a stupid feel good law in my opinion.

    Grocers and convenience store workers will still bag stuff up for you if you bring your own. I leave a reusable bag in my car for convenience and when I use it, it goes back in my car the next time I drive somewhere.

    Just remember to wash your reusable bag regularly with Disney Detergent. Those bags breed a lot of really bad bacteria, especially when left in a hot car.

    Re: Plastic Bags in Disneyland

    When I was in San Francisco, the Disney Store charged 10 cents for a nicely themed Mickey Mouse bag. A similar gift bag would probably have cost at least $2 at the store. Needless to say, I reused it as a gift bag. The Walt Disney Family Museum did not charge for their bag. I wonder if non-profits are exempt.

    Personally, I don't mind the ban. Having traveled internationally, I know many countries already have had the ban for years. What I would like to see is for more people to use cloth bags. You just throw them in the washing machines and then the dryer. The sturdy plastic bags that are popular here are cheaper, but very hard to clean and dry properly.

    Re: Plastic Bags in Disneyland

    At Disneyland, the bags they usual use for purchases are more or less used as a "souvenir" for some people. DH & I sometimes will bring a reusable Disney tote bag for our purchases but not always. We've had quite a bit of the bags you get at the shops inside the park that we end up using them for garbage bags when we traveled to there.

    Ooh, thanks for the article! I hadn't even considered that, though I've made an effort to put meats in plastic bags (gasp, I need to buy more reusable bags). I'll throw my bag in the wash next time for sure.

    Anybody can try, however he wouldn't have a chance. I mean c'mon.. like we would elect a moviestar... or in CA's case... multiple times...

    I'll keep personal freedom state. Would love to live in CA's climate and locales... could never deal with the lack of rights/freedoms.

    Re: Plastic Bags in Disneyland

    Bump!

    Looks like a statewide plastic bag ban might be coming to CA soon:

    Statewide ban on single-use plastic bags, fee for other bags proposed - latimes.com

    Both houses of our state reps seem to support it but I dont know if Gov. Brown has said if he would sign it once it gets to his desk.

    Re: Plastic Bags in Disneyland

    I work at a mall in a city that hasn't enacted this yet (thank god). But whenever I get customers from Seattle or Bellingham they are hesitant to let me bag their purchase. I often point out that if I were going to charge them for the bag I'd have asked about a bag before they know the price. I'm glad it hasn't been used because my family uses them as liners for our individual garbage cans.
