​The sale of plastic bottles is banned in San Francisco and now in France...come on USA!!

In the UK you have to pay 5p (10 cents) for a bag in the grocery store. There has been a huge impact on the number of plastic bags sold. Why doesn't the United States do the same, reduce the carbon footprint...bring your own bags!!!!
