Moreno Introduces Ordinance To Ban Plastic Bags CBS Chicago

CHICAGO (CBS) Ald. Proco “Joe” Moreno (1st) has introduced his ordinance calling for a ban on plastic bags at large retailers in the city.

As WBBM Newsradio Political Editor Craig Dellimore reports from City Hall, Moreno was flanked by several of his colleagues as he explained why he wants to ban plastic bags in stores over 50,000 square feet in size.

LISTEN: WBBM Newsradio Political Editor Craig Dellimore reports”These bags in the city of Chicago we use 3 billion B billion of these a year,” he said. “They are horrible for our environment. They are te pandora bracelets rrible for our Streets and Sanitation workers. You talk to any w pandora bracelets orker when they clean out a sewer, they’re pulling dozens and hundreds of these bags out.”

San Francisco and Aspen, Colo., already ban plastic bags.

Moreno says only big stores are included in the ordinance because they can better handle the expense, and aldermen don’t want to burden small businesses yet.

Under the ordinance, stores would be fined $150 to $250 for not complying.

The billions of bags used in Chicago are not merely eyesores, Moreno argues. Besides the litter problem, to make the bags takes 12 million barrels of oil ea pandora bracelets ch year, and they’re difficult to recycle.

Moreno said in October if the outright ban doesn’t fly in the Council, he’ll go to Plan B: charging a tax of 10 cents on retailers for every plastic bag pandora bracelets they buy. He figures that could bring millions of dollars in revenue to the city and put pressure on stores to stop using the bags.

Evanston officials are also weighing a law restricting shopping bags. The north suburban city’s Environmental Board has recommended an ordinance that would require consumers to pay 5 cents for every plastic or paper bag.

Supporters of the fee hope it will encourage consumers to skip the disposable bags and use recyclable bags.

More workers turning to brown bag

That number has probably increased as the economic crunch hits most phases of our lives.

The NPD Group says that more than half of these lunches are consumed at the workplace, mos pandora bracelets t often at the eater’s desk.

According to the NPD report titled “What’s in the Bag and Why Is It pandora bracelets in There?” the majority of consumers said they carry lunches from home more often due to financial reasons, mostly because it is cheaper than other options.

Health and nutrition concerns ranked second as a reason to brown bag, followed by convenience, taste, diet, quality, and environmental concerns.

Among consumers who typically brown bag, nearly half said they are doing so more often.

The NPD study finds that adult males carry more brown bagged lunches than others, yet quite often, females are the preparers. Brown bagging is more common among the 35 to 54 year olds, white collar consumers and professionals, and surprisingly, more affluent consumers.

What goes in the brown bags varies, but typically, it’s fruit, chips and some type of sandwich, but these items differ by gender and age, according to NPD.

Cookies replace chips in kids’ lunches.

A poultry sandwich replaces chips for men.

Women are more inclined to opt for healthier choices such as yog pandora bracelets urt and vegetables.

Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are the most popular sandwich type among the total population, and carbonated soft drinks are the dominant beverage choice.

“We’re seeing yogurt and frozen entrees gaining in popularity in carried lunches, and lunchmeat sandwiches, chips, or ham sandwiches declining,” says Arnie Schwartz, who heads up The NPD Group’s food and beverage unit. “Over the last several years, leftovers are increasingly a part of brown bagged lunches.”

According to the report, brown bagging is a planned behavior. Nearly half of consumers decide they want to brown bag the day before or earlier, but two pandora bracelets out of three brown bagged lunches are prepared the morning of the same day.
