Why do companies require proof when a county does not want to use its product, yet companies can introduce any prducts they want without prior approval?
This question is in reference to the Marin County Plastic Bag Ban
The plastic bag is not an inalienable right. It is a product. When plastic bags were introduced and now have become ubiquitous, we as consumers are stuck with it. If, as a county, the people do not want it , they should have the choice and not have to fight a corporation because their profit are dipping. If the county has made the decision without a vote, then the county should show proof to the people of the county that it is looking after the welfare of its people and environment. The county should not have to prove anything to a free-market company. These companies want to be free-market, but as soon as their profits are dipping, they use the courts, the people’s taxes, to lean on. Just waste everybody’s money, not theirs, ours. We already see the damage of plastic and how damaging it is to the environment, why should we be forced to even have the plastic bag as an option?
