Outdoor sports columnist Frank Sousa wrote this pointed column about the United States' falling behind third world countries regarding policies on plastic shopping bags. It turns out that we are behind Bangladesh and Botswana, both of which have plastic bag bans in effect.
What I like about this piece is that it's honest and from the heart. Sousa helps us see that we don't need statistics, scientific data on the degradable properties of plastic bags, or politics to just know when we are doing something that benefits our Earth.
