Make Olney a "green" community; ban plastic bags!

36 Signatures Goal: 100

Did you know that the plastic bags that you conveniently grab at the super market or drugstore are made out of oil Yep! Oil. The natural gas that is ruining the environment and costing all of you out there big money at the pumps. By banning these plastic bags across the nation, the oil shortage will be minimized! It\'s either that or a nationwide speed limit... Do you really want to be driving 55 MPH no matter where you are Stop using plastic bags! Grab a few of the reusable ones! One reusable grocery bag costs 99 cents... thats less that a quarter of what you are paying for a gallon of gas. Give it a try, I guarantee you won\'t regret it! To all of you animal lovers out there, banning plastic bags will not only save the country billions of gallons of oil per year, it will save ocean dwellers of all kinds. Take a look at the power point to the right under the \"Links\" section. I have a feeling you will change your mind about using plastic bags...

Sponsor

Maggie Rollings, Karen Rollings, and Dreama Ger are sponsoring this petition. We believe strongly in the dangers and the harmful effects of plastic bags. The link for the power point was found on google. It was not created by any of the above mentioned sponsors. We are working on contacting the creator of the power point to thank them. Please take the time to read it. If you want the actual power point to view in ppt. format, please contact Maggie at maggierollings@yahoo.com Once you take a look at the powerpoint, you may not be able to use another plastic bag again. Yes, they are convenient, but if you pick up several reusable bags and leave them in your car so you have them when you shop you will see that the reusable bags are easier to handle and have the capacity to hold A LOT more groceries!! Give it a try!
