"Unfortunately, study after study has shown that most of the
supposed “benefits” of these bans and taxes have a negligible effect on the environment at best, and can actually have unintended consequences that cause greater environmental harm. Take Ireland,
for example. When the New York Times reported the 94 percent decrease, it neglected to specify
that it was referring only to plastic grocery-bag use. Sales of
non-grocery plastic bags (garbage bags, etc.) rose an astonishing 400 percent, amounting to a net increase of 10 percent in total plastic-bag consumption.
