[greenyes] Grocery Bags - This brings up that whole contentious issue of packaging waste.....
Speaking of, speaking of....

Based on this plastic bag issue that my town is having - has any town in North America of any reasonable size - e.g. Population 500,000 or more - been successful in implementing a program whereby they ban Grocery stores - large conglomerates - from actually distributing plastic grocery bags?  Is this possible?  

I've heard of the GreenDot program in Germany - but my research in Canada - has resulted in this program being owned BY the conglomerates - so.... where is the incentive for THEM to implement such a program - whereby they are responsible for their own packaging waste??  Can a municipality realistically implement such a program? If Yes, please show me an example - thanks.
