I don't see the big worries with a ban or a charge for plastic bags. Why can't you just use reusable canvas or some other material bag? We are smart people, we'll figure out a way to carry things without contributing so much waste that never really goes away and harms many types of wildlife. Our society needs to make some serious changes if we want to have clean water and air with abundant wildlife. Making the change away from plastic to more biodegradeable materials won't be that hard. It will be like seatbelts, at first people are annoyed by the time it takes to click it and that you didn't have to wear them before. But after a little time it will be normal and not an issue.
