BAN THE PLASTIC BAG
These pictures are from my series THEY DON'T GROW ON TREES, 2014.
No matter what your political party, Democratic or militant Sunni Islamist, common sense is going-global and many politicians agree that plastic bags are a losing ticket.
This announcement was made last week on Radio Andalus. Mohammed Abu Absullah, the local Jubaland leader said plastic bags are a threat to both animal and human life and bad for the environment. Al-Shabaab is also banning logging of rare trees.
In US politics Governor Andrew Cuomo is seeking re-election against challenger Cynthia Nixon. Cynthia Nixon's platform includes banning the bag & other "sane" policies.
This April, 2018: Cuomo signs a bill to ban the bag.
Last year, 2017: Cuomo blocked a bill to ban the bag.
Perhaps we can move on to ban the bomb.
