\'overwhelming\' response on plastic bag ban a good thing, says mnl

Newfoundland and Labrador will ban retail plastic bags after they received overwhelming support in an online government survey.
But the ban is expected to take six months to a year.
The government says people should use this time to get used to carrying reusable bags with them, and retailers will have time to study alternatives.
Some businesses, including Newfoundland and Labrador Liquor, have taken the initiative to look for the possibility of alternative packaging, enforcing their own ban on single packaginguse plastics.

A local ban has been imposed.
During the public consultation process, the province launched an online survey from March 5-27.
87 of those responses were in favor of the ban.
Of the nearly 3,000 people who responded, 75 had carried reusable bags with them while shopping.
According to these results, without a provincial ban on plastic bags, 66 respondents would agree to charge for plastic bags.
In 2015, the cities of Newfoundland and Labrador first came up with the idea of banning plastic bags across the province, and since then the government has been considering whether to enforce the ban.
This is the best way.
\"Time really doesn\'t make much sense to us, as long as the ban is in place,\" said Mnl chairman Tony JICI . \".
\"It\'s overwhelming and we know to talk about getting rid of plastic bags, so we\'re really happy.
