Waste

  

   In 2012, Americans alone produced over 250 million tons of garbage. One large   component of this waste consisted of oil based plastic bags, which are   utilized excessively by grocers, restaurants, and stores nationwide. In order   to reduce this source of waste, many countries are banning plastic bags or   taxing customers for their use. Using at least two scholarly or reputable   resources and your textbook, discuss at least two environmental problems caused   by such extensive plastic bag use. If you were in charge, what plan might you   propose to reduce or eliminate their use? Discuss the economic impacts of   implementing your plan versus the financial impacts of making no change in   our current use.
 

  Your initial post should be at least 150 words in length. Utilize at least   two scholarly or reputable resources and your textbook to support your   claims. Cite your sources in APA format. Respond to at least two of your   classmates’ posts by Day 7.
 

  Carefully review the Grading Rubric   that will be used to evaluate your assignment.
